Ok, Well, That has to be the strangest 321 I have ever seen, I did not belive it was a 321 till I saw it with my own eyes, Thanks, For putting up with all my PM's guys.
But I has always assumed that this lantern was the first 321. Well we learn somthing new everyday. Wonder if this 321 is actuall a 321A and You have a original 321 No letter.

Flash, could be that they made them in Green & Blue. The one I have is a March of 1973, Looks like yours except the color, and of course the shade. Mine is a morf. that Steve had.

Yours says "deluxe easi - light lantern" on the front and mine says " Deluxe Quick - Lite Lantern" intresting. In little font under that is 321-467. Hum

As far as I know the blue one isn't necessarily a 321A. The distinction that I know about is the green one is the 321 quick-lite and the blue one is a 321 easi-lite. I do believe that the blue was both in a 321 and 321A. For example my blue 321 has the model number 321A-467 under the model name on the sticker under the knob. Flash's doesn't appear to have a model number listed in the same place while Steve's green 321 lists his as a 321-467. The blue one is followed by the green 321B and 321C.

I have added another to my list of must have.  Didn't even know this model existed until now.  There is always something new to learn in this wonderful hobby.

Just as a side note... Its Brians now. I dont ever own anything very long. lol. Im just glad that my hunts have found several firsts and lots of hard finds. Kansas sure has been good to me and good for the fine folks who will keep something in their collection forever.

Steve's the man. I have to say, I would not have some of the "finds " I have without his guidance, research and connections. Bubbas nice HGP is a Steve find. Thank You Steve. Need anything! Call! YOU DA MAN! 321 is now a permenant member of the family!

Thanks Brian. Im glad I helped it finally find a place it will be appreciated. You have a really great collection. Im glad that I can be a part of adding more to it.

I have to admit, Im not the man. Im fortunate for the very lucky knack for finding some richeous Coleman gear in the wild this year. As my HAM friends would say, Its all about position and condition.

The short list of my favorite in the wild finds. No particular order.. the vertical convexed 275 globe, 12 canvas tents (one Brand New never opened), 228 Gold Bond, Red/Gold Bond anomaly 200A, PQ Chandelier, the near perfect 242, the 321, Peak1 222, the #2 Stove, Gold Presentation 285, 3 Red 288's, 200B Anniversary, green, burgandy, and black band 200s, Olympic Torch (found but didnt buy, couldnt afford it).

Bringing people and stuff together for the greater benefit of all parties involved since 1995.

Newbe question: Why does it say for indoor use? If it is a naphtha lantern instead of Kerosene?

I have never seen this model before. Like Roger said, short lived model.
Was made the same year as the blue 321 deluxe(blue)  You have a rare model. These are worth more then 
the blue model. The green ones are very very rare. Just like the green 220f Canada.
That is a real collectors piece.
 

Agostino

these are the Orings
the first one is from a 321b green)(82) the second is from a 1973 easi lite deluxe (blue) Replace the O ring every 2 years or so with some automotive brake grease.

Agostino, so this one does not have the O-Ring?

sorry, error on my part. I had not taken one of these apart for a while and i updated my post. I was thinking of the Canadian 625A type valve assembly.
I realized it after and just went in my shed and took one apart to verify.
It as the same O ring type as the 321b,c Canada.
Verify it first, if the oring is not cracked , reinstall with some brake grease 
until you get some new ones. I did have some and gave them all away
, i will try to find more and i will let you know.

Update, a globe from a 286/288 fits perfectly. Can anyone tell me what the original globe was?

Zack

That is the correct size of globe. The original would have red lettering and say:

No. 4
Made in the USA

In following this thread I noticed some other 321 differences.

L to R    321B's  1,79    2,81    2,81 and   321C 1,82




Notice to the left and right of the Coleman icon.  The C model (right) has a flame icon with "R" and "Approved" below it .  On the 1981 B's the decal has been punched to remove the flame icon.  The early B decal did not have the flame icon. It looks like at some time after 1979 they added the red leaf as well.  The C collar does not have the match symbol and the lighting instructions are different.  My C did not have the red knob in the picture, it was black.  I thought it was the wrong one, so I put the one shown.  The picture on the box I have for the C shows an early B with the match.  If anyone has a C with the correct knob I would appreciate knowing what it looks like.  I'm guessing it won't have the detent at the light position.

So lets get this straight, Just so I can get it into my head.
There is,
321 (green) First design
321 (blue) Second design
321b (green)
321c (green)

I feel the easi lite, quick lite think is confusing.
Funny, Jim Hogg, said a few weeks ago there was a 321, And I just assumed it was the blue one.




(I was going to post a pic of that 331 I have that looks like a 321, But I think this thread is confusing enough)
