Picked this up yesterday for just $20!  Looks like it was used only a few times - red tank and 3 level legs make it a 1961 if I'm not mistaken. I like the fact that a 200A will fit inside along with a couple of folding stands. But I don't like the fact that there is no effort to secure the fuel tank during transportation.  The 426 (NL) has a method and the 426D has a method and certainly the 413 from the same era had a great method.

Also took the liberty to line up 3 three burners before I move the 426 and 426D along to new homes as I prefer the 426B out of the three.  Interestingly, the 426B marking is on the lid and not the front behind the handle.

Wow, nice one!  I usually drape a thick towel over the area where the tank goes and then fold all the excess around the tank as you drop it into the storage position.  Holds it pretty snug.

I do the same thing Mark, it does secure and I leave a little extra towel to secure the stove stand. Nice looking stove Utah Coleman user!

Great to see a pic of the 200a in there, I'd  be too worried about breakage transporting one on its side though, not that I'll have to worry about that decision anytime soon as haven't seen a 3 burner down here yet...

That's a killer score for $20.  Very well done.  I had a B and sold it for a NL that I totally restored.  For me, the construction of the NL and those big, sexy curves it has are just too much to resist.

+ on the towel.   I also fold in some home made hot pads.  Great buy at $20, glad you rescued it.

+3 on the towel. I hang it from the "towel rack" when the stove is deployed with the lid up. Handy for wiping hands, and it counter-balances the lid so if and when it falls in the breeze it falls away from the burners.

Nice line-up!

PS: If you transport the lantern like that, expect to replace the mantle every time. I've found that mantles last for years of rough roads if the lantern is transported upright, but break almost instantly when the lantern is on its side--even when well padded on smooth roads.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Of note....there is some Coleman literature out there that suggests that mantle transport better UPSIDE DOWN.

dang nice stove. I sure don't need another 3burner but that would be tough..

Why, then, did Coleman never make a case that holds the lantern upside-down?

They did. Years ago there was good thread on this, but there was some cases that said something about  "place lantern upside down"

Were those from Coleman Australia?

That advice is from the (U.S.) Coleman Handy-Pail instruction label. I don't have a detailed photo at the moment...

And btw, that's a very nice stove! The legs are great for an uneven picnic table, but you will bleed every time trying to retract them.

Hi All, 

Thank you for your interest and responses.  The box from a 1964 lantern also suggested carrying the lantern in it upside down to help the mantles last longer. I also hate retracting these style legs, but like them better than bumps, which is mostly the only other option for 3 burner stoves. I likely won't transport the lantern in the stove, but wanted to see if it would fit. I'm pretty certain that it doesn't fit in any of my other 5 or 6 stoves.

 Beautiful stove!! The three slots would make it a 1959/60 model.
