Confusing NL lighting door and QL collar.  Coleman using up old parts and was converting lots of torch lighting lanterns to QL by 1917.

What's up with the open seam in the mica?  That detail is interesting,   Lighting door can't be earlier than an NL with that stud, but if the mica chimney was sized down from something larger...

Phooey, I have to go feed the animals.

I'm going with 1916-1920 due to unmarked fiber wheel.  The QL frame rest would seem to place it in the 327 family, but that lighting hole in the frame with the swing out lighting door may be the clue to determining age...may mean this QL is a converted earlier example.

@Hot Diggity

The first QL began shipping September 1916, The NL entries began later in December 1916. 

The torch lite frame were not being used up by QL as this frame was continued to be used for the
GS (NL) GSN (IL)  steel fount lantern,
Then later  returning to brass fount  LS(NL) LSN(IL) well into the 1920s. 

Early Coleman catalogs and advertising show the QL with torch lite door frame and round fuel/air filler plug.

If a lantern left Wichita Coleman with a stamped QL collar it is a legit model QL.

With the August 1917 patent application the second frame began to show up, the flat bottom mixing chamber with set screw for air tube, round air/fuel filler, rounded fiber valve wheel went away. 

The early 5”X5” QL 327 mica has been found in both 6 and 12 piece versions.

Thanks Larry.  So that'd make it a QL from late 1916 to early 1917.  Yes?

I still like the gap in the mica.  It looks like it'd try to lay out flat if removed from the frame.  The two panels aren't overlapped.  First I've seen this.  Maybe early production method?  Now I need to dive into the study of mica chimney history.  It seems there is a Coleman niche for everyone.

1916-'17. First to use the flat-bottom Q burner w/setscrew from the factory.

It won't have a stop on the valve wheel, so be careful! I only open mine one full turn and it works fine.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

only that wheel is not fiber.(Phenolic) it's plastic.
And if you open the valve fully it will come out in your hand.
I have one of these. it's even a tad older. has a round filler plug.

@Hot Diggity , 

https://www.colemancollectorsforum.com/post/323-327-mica-globe-information-9970135?pid=1306694593

Davids mica, and fuel/filler are not original to his lantern new, the sliding up and down window showed up in late 1924. The particular hex filler is early twenties. 

I think you are referring to the separation gap in the mica frame ? That is not a common occurrence. 

@Gunhippie

The first valves with a 3/8” gland nut will not have a stop, 

valves with 7/16” gland nut will have a stop unless it has been damaged or removed also with rounded valve wheel. 

Both valves are found on this time frame, obviously the no stop had to be first.

What is up with the gap in the mica frame?  Is it a bad camera angle?  Is it broken?  Would love to see it out of the frame.

Chuck, look at the upright post attachment above, the upright creates a double view of the mica frame.

his vent stud has not been backed out. Not sure when they did that. Mine was that way. I've seen several here that had them unscrewed about 1/16".

Hot Diggity
If you see one that's unscrewed like that, check the installed height and contour of the air tube.  Remember, there's over 100 years of history here. Things get piled on top of lanterns, buildings burn down and collapse around lanterns, lanterns fall and land on the vent stud.  They also get disassembled by guys who think that if there are threads showing, that means things should be screwed in one more turn.  Add it all up and between the slightly squashed air tubes and the over-tightened ones, you can easily come up with a stud that's 1/8" too short.

This is my favorite one.  It would run, poorly, and had a caved in three piece vent to match the shortened tube.  Turns out the tube was full of bug nests as well, but it needed replacing anyway.  The old girl was much happier after I replaced the squashed tube, and straightened the top of the vent.
