A good friend brought me this iron yesterday.  He found it at a flea market and since he knew I was interested in such things he picked it up.

This is a little different from my Akron iron, this one has two knobs.  The handle isn't scorched but it does have some wear marks.  I see a bit of soot on one side port which must have been the preferred place to light it.
I haven't found much on the Monitor iron in my searches, so any tips and info would be appreciated.
Sorry about the messy table.

If that is the price tag, great move.

Yep, $10.  I tried to pay him for it, but he wouldn't take my money.

Cool.  I have a Monitor, but it’s earlier than yours. I can’t quite tell from the picture, does the filler have provision for pumping, or is it just a plug? Can you show a picture of the under side of the tank for a better view of the valve?

There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.

Yep, it has the pump port on the filler cap.  Wish I had one of those little iron pumps!

Here is the valve arrangement.  Wish I could find some instructions.  I guess I'll figure it out.

It came with this handy trivet.  I don't know if it is original to this iron but it fits perfectly and they look like they go together.
Neat stuff.
I opened the fill port and could detect no smell.  At least it isn't full of old rotten RUG!

Nice Monitor. I have a couple all older than yours. As far as I can tell Monitor made the Coleman #1 iron..not sure if they made the #2 as well
