    I have had this one for a long time. Bought it off a friend in London around 1985 ish. Not at all common lamps and typically of old Coleman not been run for 25 years but fired right up without any fuss. ::Neil:: 1317222738-Col_L227_01.jpg

    Well Coleman made around 18,000 of them between 1927 and 1931. Mind you that is not many when you consider that in the same period they made maybe half a million other Quick-Lite lanterns. They als made a conversion hood so you could convert a regular 427 to a wide hood. They are easy to spot because the bail is attached to the hood not the globe cage. ::Neil::
