    Welcome aboard!:thumbup:

    That's a fine old Coleman lantern which is well worth restoring and the link below shows relevant information.

    L427, LQ427, 2LQ

    @JEFF JOHNSON

    Looks like I cross-posted with you. We must have pressed “go” at the same time!

    Cheers

    @IvanN You crossed over, too? lol
    Nice lantern. A 427 of some sort as the others have stated. Perfect as a buddy for an old stove. I've fettled a few of those you'll have lots of fun! :D

    I love the embossed lettering around the rim of the hood, it's an elegant touch!

    Hard to read the date stamp but it looks like 6 3 which is March 1926 and would be correct for a later LQ427. Perhaps the best lamps Coleman ever made. Almost no moving parts so all it wants is a clean and then maybe a new pump leather and perhaps a generator and it will live again. If the steel base plate is not rusted they almost always fettle and work. ::Neil::

    Thanks Neil, i oiled up the pump leather, it's still soft. it does need a new seal at the filler cap, I can't pump it up to enough pressure,but that's all I see it needing at this point. You are right, it's a great lamp!

    is this not a slant type burner and frame support with an earlier vent? Hard to tell from the pics.

    @dwillie , I can get some better pics. I am not familiar with the differences. If you describe the angles you want to see I will try to get clear pics to post.

    @IvanN

    If you post photos from different angles of the lantern with the hood (vent) and chimney removed, you’ll answer @dwillie ’s question.

    Cheers

    Probably L220, first of the instant lite types.

    We like.

    Go to the Coleman Collectors Forum and do a search on "slant". These are essentially a transition lantern from one lighting style to another and are different than what came before and after. They have their own peculiarities with parts not seen in any other models. Well worth a restoration.

    Nice and uncommon thing. The slants were only made for maybe three years. Coleman model number was L220 or later just 220 but either way a great find. It is an odd burner/fuel feed and they can be temperamental to light. I remember Fil Graff and I running a table lamp with this burner some years back and it took about half an hour before it settled and ran correctly. Sweet thing though in the end. ::Neil::

    From what I know yours is the earlier L220 as it has the finely ribbed valve wheel
    These were made to hold the automatic tip cleaning rod which came with correct T88 generator
    When the valve was closed the pricker did its job in the jet an when it was open it cleared the jet
    T88s are not made anymore but there are substitutes
    Nice score!
