I am already looking forward to fall coler weather and I have a #5 heater Thanks to Warren and it is in pretty fair condition. The front drop down panel is the only real rusty part. I have new decals now too. I am still looking for a real good series of pics of an original to work towards. I see in the Coleman products book there is a pic on Page 374 of one from the Sellers collection that is a very nice pic showing the antique copper color on the cast parts like the front feet and Finials and upper details. Does anyone know if it was restored or is likely an original to work from. I do not want a museum piece but something that would look nice in the living room with a pair of Perfection Heaters
Thanks

I think Curleyjoe_99 Made mine. I can look but I think I bought an extra if it would help It is the #5 and not a or B
Now I will be looking for a Coleman stencil and a front decal for My 9D stove in case I get a wild hair and redo it.

I went and looked, He made me 3 so I can screw up the repaint. I never hope to have more than the one #5 Heater and I figure I can get it pretty close with two chances,  I would be happy to send you the third one since they probably have a shelf life anyway. and that takes Robert off the hook for now

Bob were you the one wanting the trim parts to practice on?   I've been soaking the screws/nuts with Kroil.  Could tray and take it apart this week, but couldn't remember who wanted those parts.  I did send the "finials" and rods to someone that needed them a few months ago.  Still parting this one out to get to the burner.

Just FYI I had a 5 and 5B here side by side and noticed the lay out of the buttons to keep the gen hot are different.  Just another way we can tell the difference in them.  On the 5, the 3 were close together, on the 5b, more space between each button.

Good info on the subtle burner differences, Yes I would like pieces to practice on for look and finish, When you have time and if you can possibly locate the AGM 3806 pricker drive gear and get time to disassemble the trim we can ship it all with the 9D pump  shaft. Unless you happen to gave a AGM L593 generator,  and 9D decal too. all these parts could have the Mrs, looking up over her glasses. Just made an order to OCP on Friday. But it is still much cheaper/safer than sitting at the local watering hole.
Thanks 
Hope everyone's weekend/holiday was good

This 5B is original finish.  The finial tips and feet are not a contrasting bronze color.

Very interesting, I just figured the cast pieces aged  to the finish we see today? When I removed the finials of my 5 there is obviously a copper paint traces or a aged, dark copper color. Were there different trim/color levels available?  Even the protective grate has traces of copper color splotches. So hard to tell. Those three you have look great.

Sorry I have to make a correction,  the heater in the photo is a 5A.  I took a closer look this morning and still don't see any sign of bronze color on the heavier metal trim bits. It could simply be the way the finish aged too.   It came from a ladies vintage clothing store in northern Arkansas and looks to have been stored indoors most of its life.  The controls on the tank assembly are slightly different from the 5, and 5B

Sure looks to be the same color brown as the rest. I wonder why the differences

Just pulled the #5 finials and took a couple pics to confuse things even more, Definitely a copper tone paint on the under side and between the flutes on one finial. maybe a few specs on the front feet but only maybe.

You made me curious so I took off a finial.  There is a little bit of bronze color under the finial and a tiny spot in a groove near the tip.  Maybe some just got more than others and what little there was just faded away.

Lots left to artistic interpretation???  Every one was different??? and how good is your sense of color? Hoping "Buckeyedcamper" gets time to post some good pics of the one he found back in may. It has lots more subtle color detail than full on copper painted castings also shows the color on the protective grate nicely. It shouldn't be this hard but it is. Maybe it was done more of a thin washed and wiped to leave it mainly in the details???

Thank You, Inquiring Minds want to know!  Seems to be so many variations and maybe no two were alike anyway???

I got the top two curved pieces off.  I'll have to drill out some screws to get the other pieces.  I'd want $30 + shipping for all those parts, mainly because of the effort it is going to take to get them off.  Let me know if you want them and I'll start drilling this weekend.  I've Kroiled it for months and put heat to it today and the screws are rusted solid.

Did I say $30, LOL.  I guess it wasn't too bad.  6 screws to drill out.  Once I got them out I could tell they were never going to unscrew from the nut.  This heater came from Dick Sellers estate.  I'm thinking a medium or large flat rate box may be best due to the weight.  Still got to find more stuff for you.  We hope to do more sorting next week.  Just got to find which box the geared turner is in.

Looks good warren. I figure I can make some ugly versions until I get close.  I am not in a hurry I will have to do a second PP-FF when you get the new total
