    This one i have had for many years, Made in July 1928 it is a good working lantern (most Quick-Lites are) the vent has the typical indents three on the upper part and two on the outer rim ( attachment points for the bail when ordered as an accessory wide vent ) for the moment i test run this one with a Stove R55 Generator, and it works perfect !

    There are not many of these around. The model was intruduced in 1927 but I don't think it was in production for very long. From the shipping records Coleman shipped around 10,000 between 1928 and 1931. Sounds like a lot but it is in fact less than 10% of their lantern production for the same period. Makes it a nice one to find especially in such good condition. ::Neil::
