    Welcome, Andrew.

    Have a look through here (model numbers containing “2”).

    Cheers

    I would guess that it's a 1321.
    It looks like it once had the soldered tag for the alcohol version, and the preheater has obviously been blanked off.

    Have a look here.

    I agree that it is/was a 1321 but has had the quick start removed. It's an interesting blanking plug for the quick start hole. I wonder where that came from.

    In another topic of these back then I said:
    Still looks like that travelling cap to me.

    Topic now moved to 1321 and title amended.

    Welcome to CPL @Andrew Sharples
    It looks in good condition :thumbup:
    You might want to check the jet size to determine if it still feeds on alcohol or has been converted back to paraffin.

    Thanks for the great feedback guys. I'm well impressed. Is it possible to get a rough idea of how much It is worth?

    Sorry, site policy is we don't give valuations.
    There is too much variation between countries and sale methods.

    The site policy is to not do valuations. It’s a nice lantern, though!

    Cheers
