Some of my 327's came with the stamped coleman vents while others came in stamped. I bought one at a local flee with a green vent that is the same size as the vent on my 220B.

At the convention I purchased a 427 at the auction that has a green vent.

My question is what is the correct vents for 327 and 427 series? I'm sure that the year of production has something to do with it.

Thanks guys.

Yep, agree. All listed are correct but for different time periods. Also different countries. And the very last 327s were made in Canada, they have what looks like a 220 vent, or maybe a 235 vent. The change in vent brim (adding one) happened on model 220B (in the USA), Some have the later vent with a brim, some have just the vent cap like the 427.

The earliest 327's came without stamping of the Coleman name on the vent as I recall, (pre-1924?).

Post Resurrection!

I have a 427 dated ironically 4/27.  It has an unmarked vent on it with the 3 little tabs on it for centering the mica.  Can anyone tell me if this is the correct vent for this time period or should it have the embossed Coleman vent?  The ICCC book says that all 427 vents should be embossed, and I think it also says the switch to the enameled vents was somewhere in the 1927 range.  Just looking for some historical accuracy!  Thanks!

It should have a embossed nickel vent or possibly a brimless porcelain vent. You are correct, they did change in 27.

thats what i'm thinking also.  now to just find one.  i actually think it should probably have the brimless porcelain vent.  and perhaps it was bad and someone replaced it with the other one.  maybe i can put a WTB on the classified area?  or maybe i can trade someone the one i have because i think it belongs on a 327?

Actually US Coleman enameled green brimless vents started showing up sporadically with nickel in late 1926. Likely caused by inventory parts mingling also referred to as bleed over, easily confirmed by the month dating when comparing examples. Some red brimless with white underside examples have been discovered on Quicklites a year or two earlier.

so it really could be either the embossed nickel or the green porcelain?

yes sir,  you did request historical accuracy. The nickel vent or enameled vent could be correct regardless whether 327/427. By April 1927 they would most likely be enameled with no guarantee.

ok awesome thanks for the info!  I will put an APB out in the classifieds and see if I can track down a brimless porcelain vent.  Thanks again!

Rotaar, either one would be correct as there is no proof of exact month of change in 27. Embossed or brimless porcelain. Just what you want to put on your lantern. I call it a flip of a coin.
