    Some pictures of my Blue Coleman Easi-Lite model 321 Lantern made in 1973 and one of all 3 of my lanterns that are 13-21 years older than me! I love the colour of this lantern and I would like to buy a couple more of this colour.

    Question, the glass globe has a crack top to bottom during shipping. Is it still okay to use like this or do I need to get a new one?

    Welcome aboard!:thumbup:

    In my opinion, the cracked glass will do until it breaks, some collectors fix cracked globes with super glue, but I have not tried that.

    G'day @Johnathan and they are 3 nice looking lanterns. Congratulations. :thumbup:
    Regarding the cracked globe, I agree with Jeff. If the lantern is to be a user get a spare and use the cracked one until it falls apart.
