    Newest piece to my lantern collection. A Canadian made Coleman 321B Lantern made in February 1981. Came with a full tank of fuel of newer mantle!

    I must say, that after having used a dual mantle propane lantern last year when I was camping and comparing it to these single mantle ones running Coleman fuel, I think I like the light these give off better, it isn't as harsh of a light. Of course with the propane one it was attached to a tree on the 20lb tank and you could run it for a very long time and much cheaper than with these, but I just think I like these better.

    Running well, a good example. Did you use the fuel it can with?
    Cheers

    Thanks!

    Yes I did, it was basically full. When I got it home, I decided to open up the fuel cap. Ya, that was a bad idea. It had pressure in the tank, luckily I closed it right away and open had a small spill. It fired right up though so I'm thinking the fuel is probably fairly new...

    Good deal, solid runner. I'm finding I prefer single mantle lanterns as well.
