The second one is a military stove, originally came in an aluminum case. Can't remember the number off the top of my head, 523 maybe? Great finds!

Yup 523. Mind like a steel trap.

Did the case for the 523 look like this by chance? thumbnail_image3.jpg

Second one is Stove, M1942 Two-burner (so as not to be confused with the Stove, M1942 single-burner).  Coleman used the model number 523 but that would only apply to stoves made by Coleman. The government name regardless of maker is M1942. The stoves were issued to several types of units during WWII. Some were meant as heaters for sterilizing units. Some of the cases have the Medical Department logo with MD letters separated by a caduceus (a winged staff with two serpents twined around it) stamped into the lid. Other lids are plain. These stoves were also issued to vehicle crews like tankers, engineering units, outfits that had a vehicle to carry it in. Like the canisters for the single burner stoves the case is meant to double as cookware. The lid as frying pan, the bottom as stewpot. Coleman and AGM made them during WWII, maybe others as well. They were made and issued until late 70s - early 80s by a number of vendors. Maker should be stamped either on the fuel tank or on a plate on the frame.

Thanks everyone for your help.  There's an older gentleman locally who is looking to get rid of his collection of old military stoves.  I recently acquired a Speedmaster 500 46-B from him and cleaned it up.  He sent me a bunch of photos (some of which I shared here) and I haven't gotten to physically examine all of them yet.  Many I recognize and will make an offer (i.e. M1942-Mod single burner, No. 530, M1950, etc.), others I have very little info on, like the X-140 and some (like the M1942 2 burner I had no clue at all).  Thanks again for the help with the ID.

Top stove looks like a later Prentiss Wabers to me.

Timm - top stove definitely a Turner. Data plate, tank suspension rings and the metal wagon wheel fuel valve knob are the giveaways.
