I came across this Canadian propane lantern on eBay recently.  I have never seen one of these before.  It reminds me of my 335, which  is one of my favorite users.  I think it is the coolest looking Coleman propane lantern I have ever seen, and I would have bought it, but I was put off by the price.  $98.00 plus shipping from Canada.  However, someone was not put off and it sold rather quickly.  My question is: are these rare lanterns in Canada and elsewhere?  Do they typically demand such a steep price?  Maybe because it was unfired?

They're pretty rare. In my area you can see 150 of the gas 335 for every 1 of the propane models.

I passed up an unfired one with the box at a flea market last year for $20 (about $15 US). 

Despite the rarity, there's no way I would pay more than $20 for one and it would have to be complete with box. They're not special enough to warrant that $98 selling price.

As if a 335 wasn't bad enough but a propane version. Yuck

I have a couple of them. One is unfired. I thought they were sharp looking lanterns and that's why I bought them. I've always liked the 335 too. I can't remember what I paid but know it was nothing near 98 dollars.

Personally I've only seen a few in years of collecting but I'll be honest and typically walk past most propane models 

I think I know where one is if you're interested.

Thank you for the input everyone.  I would like to own one someday, but the best price would have to be pretty cheap considering the shipping from Canada.

I don't know how well that would run especially with it just looking like a modified 335, but I do love my propane user, it is a Bernz-O-Matic Porta Light in great shape, It doesn't need to be pumped up and I happen to have adapters to fill 20 pounders from the main tanks and then 20 pounders to the one pounders so I can run my lantern for dirt cheap (the bottles say "not to be refilled" but if they truly were why would they sell adapters to refill them?). The propane ones also don't hardly make any strong smelling exhaust, I've ran it for hours on end in the house in the middle of winter and not started to smell it for quite a while, its no worse than a propane appliance like a cook-stove. Oh, did I mention I only paid $25 for it, and it was shipped to my door for free? Propane lanterns are not worth all that much from what I've seen, they are also hard to get parts for and find information about them sometimes but I do like mine, It wouldn't be a bad thing to have one around but I'm sure the Coleman purists would disagree Haha.

LOL, Donnie, I just knew you'd have a 335 comment.

Anyways, Bird, that's interesting; I'd prefer one of those to a number of other propane lanterns.
