It's right at home in that fine company, Archie.
Looks like it has not been fired much. What an excellent example!

Sweet collection! You're going to collect them all before the border reopens and we can get one! It amazes me that it says "Insert lighted match here" , you'd think it would say " Hold Lighted Bic Under This Hole" :D

What's the lowest you'll take for this lantern?                                                

          Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

And oh... I don't flip GPA's... I have gifted several though. :D

I wonder how many times people inserted an unlit match before they read the instructions and said "oops" 😂

I’ve never seen one in the wild and they rarely show up on the bay. I think it was used as the picture on some 321 boxes

Wow! Nice early 321!
Just read the Feb 1972 335 Coleman lantern manual the other day & it said
"Have a wooden match or paper drinking straw ready to insert".

It’s not really an old lantern compare to the early ones but owning one is freakin exciting since they were only made for 1month :)

So far I know about 4-5 guys that has one but not in this condition. I think someone has a box and instructions on how to operate this and also a survey form (5 pages) to fill and send it back to Coleman.

Here is that ratty box and instruction book I promised you. I sure hope I never had the lantern that went with it and gave it away or worse yet parted it out. :( lol Never paid much attention to the newer models but I sure do now.

WOW the elusive 3-73 Green 321 with the original box - what a score - and looks like it was maybe fired once?

Sorry Archie, but you've earned this!

The box photo of the lantern is blue but the lantern itself is green .. Maybe that’s the box for blue 321 but .. the collar is similar to 321 deluxe 🤔

That’s a different model than this 321 deluxe. The blue 321 was made after this one. 321 deluxe was made for only 1month 3/73.
