In cleaning out my FIL's house for eventual sale, we ran across his collection of old REI catalogs.  Thought it might be entertaining to post the stove prices.  The oldest catalog he had was from 1967.  The cover that year was Mt. Stuart in the Cascades of central Washington.  I hope the pages are readable.  By the way, the dividend for members back then was about 10%.

Multiply all prices by 7.73x to equate to 2020 dollars.

I purchased my Optimus 8r in 1970, for under $20.  Still have it and runs like the day I purchased it, after hundreds and hundreds of miles on the trails.  Great to see those old catalog images.  I remember scanning every single page of the Campmor catalogs when they would arrive, hoping to find a new item to add to my outback gear.  Somehow, it is just not the same as "googling," an item and seeing stuff on eBay or Amazon.  I would wear those catalogs out flipping through them many, many times in search of a unique item, or just admiring the cool stuff they had to offer.

Makes me wonder now what I paid for my very first Coleman anything, a brand new 400A stove 33 years ago.

Optimus 8R listed for $11.95 in 1970.  My father-in-law's 8R hasn't seen flame for probably 30 years, but I'll have it running again pretty soon for use, I hope, by his grandchildren.

Full title, 'Mountaineering, Freedom of the Hills' published by the Seattle Mountaineers ($5.00).  Catalog description: " . . . the most widely used text on climbing technique and equipment ever printed."  My copy is hidden away under the eaves in my dad's WWII footlocker.

The 22B is 10 to 20 times the price on the bay now then the catalog shows.

That would bring the Svea 123 to $61.45 in 2020.   I suspect the Svea 123 may now be discontinued, but if you can find a new one, it'll most likely be in the $110 to $120 range.  Admittedly, there was a lot more competition back then, as well as less personal injury attorneys.
