Did some travelling and came across these:

[IMG-20200709-1706133] 
[IMG-20200709-1706515] 

And this is what was in the big box:
[IMG-20200709-1713383] 
[IMG-20200709-1713449] [IMG-20200709-1713525]  [IMG-20200709-1713571] The AGM is a model 100. 

The 242C is dated 12/48.

The stove was a mystery.  The manifold paint is unscorched.The paint on the underside of the grate is unscorched, and the paint is still there on the top of the grate. Its never been cooked on, but it looks like its been lit once. The tank is full to the top.

That really had me thinking. I couldn't imagine how something so nice could have been lit but never cooked on. 

After giving it a closer looking over, I found the primary burner had been assembled incorrectly...at the factory possibly? If you look close in the second to last pic you can just see a ring out of place. It was worse than that.

Taking the cap off the burner revealed that the top flat burner ring had been sandwiched between 2 of the 4 locating posts for the burner rings and the burner cap, and one of the lower rings was outside the post in another direction. This could explain why they were never able to get it hot enough to scorch the manifold paint. It didn't behave, and got put in a box and forgotten about, for decades.

I straitened the mess out and reassembled it correctly, and I have zero doubt it would burn pretty blue...but this I'm not going to light. I would say its once fired but never cooked on, and I'm going to leave it that way.

One of my best days picking ever, I'm still all smiles.

The 242Cnamd the 442A are great pieces. I don't know much about the AGM 100, but it looks nice as well. Look very close for stress cracks on that brass AGM fount.

UNBELIEVABLE, ARRYK!! [Smilie5]

Yet, I believe it, but an unfired 242 with the tags and that unlit 442? This rarely happens...

I don’t believe I have the words for how jealous I am! Looks like the 242 was lightly used With a burned in mantle  which is good because in my mind I wouldn’t have to just look at it. I would have to let their be light. The 442 is a jaw dropper 4 sure. Oh and You Suck 😁

Its a 100. It has a different pump than the 3608...at least this one does. It has a 'screw down' pump cap, where the 3608 - at least mine, does not.

[IMG-20200711-1438158] 

No stress cracks, and the pip was even good. It just needed a cap gasket.
[IMG-20200711-1437568] 
That burner frame is not the original, I have the original soaking now. This one I had hiding on a shelf behind another lantern, with a mantle already on it.  It has a longer burner tube than the original or my 3608, and has been problematic in testing before, on other like models.

I just wanted to see how she ran with it.

If we identify the pump in segments, top middle and bottom, as far as what can be seen, heres how that plays out:

The bottom ring which screws onto the fount is brass. The center "ring" with the threads for the pump plunger to screw down to is steel, along with the pump shaft, and the plunger handle is brass.
