Pick this stuff up out of an old home which was going to be burnt down.  I need info. if anyone can help.  Also, the lantern needs the hand pump! any chance of finding one?? Lots of parts and papers with it. No date stamp that I can find.  Any help would be great.

Hello George and welcome to the madness. If there is no date code on the side of the fount, under the quick-lite logo, it is mid 1924 or older. Starting in 1922, there was a letter pressed into the face of the valve wheel. If there isn't one, it's pre 1922. Hand pumps do come up for sale in the classifieds on this forum from time to time.

Lantern is a QL327 as you posted in the topic. No date stamp puts it pre September 1924. With better pictures with the vent and mica chimney off, we can get you even closer to the exact date. Is there a letter on the fuel valve knob? The lighting instructions you show are for a CQ Lamp. The organge box is for a Q99 generator used on this QL327 and other early quick light lamps and lanterns.

Thank You.  Very helpful.  Will be checking value.

So, started take the lantern a part last night.  The fuel value knob and the chimney both have an F on them.  Do you know what the F is for?

Pictures of the frame base?

The part you call a "chimney" is the burner mixing chamber. The chimney is another name for the mica globe.

From the looks of your burner assembly, the earliest would be around 1920, but the frame base and baffle plate (if any) will tell.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Timm, the base rest is the QL327 Quicklite base rest.

George, the F on the valve wheel means 1927ish. But since the fount has no other markings means that the valve knob has been replaced. The F on the mixing chamber is just a casting letter. They are not used for dating the burner assembly.

As long as the valve wheel hasn't been changed, that would be a 1927 model year. The F on the wheel signifies that.

No date on lantern! Obviously the valve knob has been replaced so it would not be from 1927!
Plus this 327 lantern does not have the bail tabs turned up that the 1927 models have. And wrong mixing chamber for 1927 models.

I guess I wasn't clear: The base of the frame. The part that sits on the frame base or collar. It may or may not have a round plate on top of it.

If you're still looking for a pump, there are a couple left in the classifieds here.

That lantern is in nice shape.  You'll be pleased with the progress and how nice it runs.
