    This is one very very nice looking lantern. Usually seen in green. The red looks great!

    Why prototype? Was it perhaps an export model for Japan? ::Neil::

    I heard from Japanese Coleman collector that even red model 335 seemed to be extremely early prototype. Is it a mistake?
    That it was sold in Japan is doubt. I cannot find it in Japan.
    Why are the number of production also little?

    Regards,Motoshi

    No it's not a prototype. They were made in red up to about 1970 and then changed to all green for later production. ::Neil::

    I think what your are referring to is some VERY rare Red 335 prototypes that have been sold and bought from Collectors over time.

    The red 335 was the first of the Canadian 335s to ever be manufactured. Later the green model was made.So , the red 335 is not a prototype by itself , was in production and sold for a very short period in 1970.
    I have seen a stamped 1969 red prototype in Roland Chevaliers collection in Canada.Collar was not stamped and burner frame was a little different.
