    June of 1927. US product in the 1920s was always date stamped year-month. ::Neil::

    This is posted under USFS, which I figured was wrong, so I moved it to L427.
    But then I saw that the pump looks a bit different, so I moved it back to this initial place for now.
    Or IS it really an USFS? I can't see any text on the tank, and the year seems wrong since TheSteve dates the USFS's to a period of 1932-1935 for those.

    Can you Coleman experts sort out which section it should be under?
    I see in my PLC that L427 also had some lamps with the fully internal horizontal pump, so I guess Section L427 would be correct?

    Yes 427 always has a pump and early examples have it sticking up out of the tank but by 1927 it was near horizontal as this one shows. So this is just a later L427 and should be posted there and not with USFS. ::Neil::
