Whoa Larry, thanks for the many variations. I admit I've never memorized much of their timeline. This helps.

Great history lesson, Larry. What are you basing the date on for the first production example in 1923?  Any major differences through 1928 of the production of the 327 type, other than the letter stamp on the valve wheel?

Thank you for all of that info Larry. Are the earliest ones the only ones marked with the poultry house stencil? Mine has that stencil, but some of the burner parts are later. Possibly replacement parts. I would like to put mine back to original. Do you know whether or not the vent was embossed on the early version?

//////////:::::::::.......
Thank You Greg, this particular 1923 example has a single patent air tube : although some 1923 did have the British stamp as well, also block type mixing chamber with letter “F”, this one has no logo stamping on the vent : although some 1923 did, fiber valve wheel letter stamp “B”. These components considered along with the correct frame/bail and fount stenciling were used to achieve dating. 

There are differences in the 327 type from 1923-28 and some may parallel the 427 type, although  jobber advertising I have seen for the 327 type up into 1929 does not show or mention any later change like porcelain vents etc, so old stock components may have been being depleted. I have seen one example of a 327 type with up position bail ears and Bakelite valve wheel indicating 27/28.

 After 1928 less than 500 total poultry lanterns were shipped 1929-31, the built in pump type with 5 1/4 porcelain vent depicted in 1930 catalogs will be the last and likely fewest. Only 4 of these were shipped in 1931 before going extinct.

Hi Rob, according to the 1925 Coleman catalog the stenciling changed to Jumbo in that time frame likely to make the product appeal to a larger market other than just poultrymen, the embossed vent showed up in 1923 so either with or without would be correct.

Thank you Larry for the information on the E20 lanterns!

FWIW, here are a couple images of my Jumbo Lantern. I have since replaced the glass shade with one of Fred's mica shades, and replaced the generator with a Q99 generator.

They burn forever it seems!

Thank you for that info Larry. My poultry lantern has had a few parts replaced over time and I would really like to have it with all of it's correct parts again. It has the poultry house stencil, but has what I believe to be a later curved baffle plate. It has the embossed vent. The valve wheel has also been replaced with one the resembles the 242 style wheel.

Rob, please keep in mind that 1922-24 era was a very transitional time for Quick-Lite lantern and not to mention lamp components including : flat and curved baffles,  embossed and non embossed vents, and some other transitions The Bakelite valve wheel you described I definitely consider a replacement that began transition in 1928 era. 
The example shown above in my original post has the curved baffle.

Other manufacturers advertised Poultry Lanterns to the Poultrymen of the time as well. Here are a few, there were others.

I have that exact shade on one of my lamps. I don't think mine is a NuLite but it could be, it's similar to a NuLite 110, but not exact . Could also be an Acorn or a Home Manufacturing make. I had someone tell me it could be a liberty #3 too. The shade is identical, it is light green and white with tiny flowers painted on it. I've seen them in different colors, brown and white, even solid colors. Jerry Engbring's site shows a few of them, used by Coleman. He calls it a pretzel shade.

His website says that there is no Catalog to prove that they were sold by Coleman. I have looked through 1000's of catalogs and ad's and have never seen this "Pretzel" style shade as Jerry calls it, on any Coleman lamp or advertised as being Coleman. This Nulite Ad proves that these shades were for in fact made for Nulite and could obviously be used on any other lamp, but not sold by Coleman. Without definite proof, one can only assume.

I don't think that I will change anything except for the valve wheel which is obviously a later wheel. I knew that the wheel had been replaced when I bought it, but believe me, that wasn't a deal breaker.

from what i gather about these pretzel shades all the early ones were just plain white glass . i have one similar to Dans here but mine doesnt have the flowers on it .
