Saw an add on CL yesterday for this A47 530. Looked to be in good shape so I arranged to go buy it today. In my confirmation email I mentioned I would be interested in any other Coleman gear the seller was hoping to sell. He had several items put in a pile along with the stove but mostly parts lanterns and a nice 425 stove, hardly used. I passed on the 425 but he showed me his stuff that he wasn’t interested in selling including this 1-61 200a and this clean CLX dated 5-85 We ended up on a bundle price, more than I’m used to paying but I came away with some cool toys. Oh yeah, and 3 packs of silk lite 21 mantles too.

I worked on the 530 for about 30 minutes and all it needed was a cap gasket and oil on the leather. Had to clean up the eccentric a bit as it had some old fuel residue making it stick. Put her back together and rinsed the fount a few times with cf and fired it up. It had a little rust tint, but no chunky stuff. Needed a cup of coffee and decided to use this little perco I picked up few weeks ago.
