Rare COLEMAN AIR O LANTERN 319 Fount? Quicklite Collector Vintage Please Read.
Condition is "For parts or not working". I was told this was a 319 fount that was converted to be a 327 by the coleman lamp company later in life by a coleman expert a few years ago at the coleman museum in Wichita kansas. I have done more research and im not 100% sure that it true. I found out that they did in fact do this but the bottom bolt on the 319 looks to be smothed off on this as well as shape looks a little different to me.
However i have never seen a lantern like this. The knob for the fual is not Ql, 327, or 427 but does appear to be original and looks 319 to me however the shaft looks 327. The flame peace also appears to be original but pre 1919 as its not marked with the patten. Ive always been afraid to clean this because of the mica globe and always afraid to run it do to its rarity so it is dirty and dusty. The wood case does have condition issues.
Font measures 8 in not the 7in for the larger font that was offered. The 327 in the last picture is not included and is only for comparison.
