Beautiful collection William!


I have this Primus Automatic Two Stove that hasn’t been fired. Too bad it doesn’t have its original box as it’s received some scrapes over the years Click image for larger version - Name: E3239EDE-C3EF-401F-9966-2431AB3F293F.jpeg, Views: 1723, Size: 122.10 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 8260E4FF-DE32-4CCE-9253-93FC506BD81A.jpeg, Views: 1698, Size: 50.42 KB

639 CPR 1/78--according to a railway worker, lots of these were never used as electric torches were now common and the lanterns only got used if the train's generator system conked out. Most lived their lives in the original box in the caboose...until liberated when cabooses were eliminated.

@Fj40z no not J'Ville.  Cary(sorry for the late reply).
My "honey hole" produced this unfired 639B this weekend.  2/94. A few observations:
1. The picture on the box depecits this plastic pump cap.  The lantern has the earlier metal style. 
2. The globe is red lettered on the box, but actual is white and says "Replacement No. 690...".  I suppose it's possible the original got broken and the owner replaced it, but I seriously doubt it.
3. You can see where the owner immediately put their name on the bottom.  Hoping some denatured alcohol will get this off without taking any paint with it. I'll probably test this on another fount.
4. This model is not advertised as being "adjustable".  Just an observation.
5.  The box touts "Porcelainized ventilator will not rust".  Ha.... ha... ha...
Without further ado

I think I had this 12/80 200A 700 in my possession  for about 8 hours. It went home with a fellow member. I'm sure it'll be safer there.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

So at a guess,  bought as a spare, and beat around in a vehicle or camp box to get the globe busted and the vent looking like that...  Wow...

Nah, the paint on the fount is pristine. Never rattled around in a rig, for sure. But dropped on its head and abandoned in its youth, much like me.

We'll just have to see what Duane makes of it... seems that the vent was used on some later propane/butane lanterns?

I have been on fire with unfired's lately; my 4th since May. This is 7/67 220F with the old style box.  I have not opened the other one yet, in the new style box, but I suspect my curiosity will get the better of me soon.

Here's an interesting little single burner stove. Uses the small LP cans. Made by The Pressure Can Corporation out of Edgerton, Wisconsin probably in the 60's.
This is an unfired example and cannot live here so watch the classifieds on this one. Here's a pic.

Just picked this beauty up today that I found on my local craigslist.  220B in the original box with paperwork and wrenches.  The date is a little hard to read but it looks to be October 1937.

If I ever get an unfired lantern, I’ll record me filling it up, burning the mantles, and lighting it for the first time. That way y’all can get your fix. I won’t have one that I won’t use. I fire everything! And use everything. 😆

I believe that all of it's spare parts and goodies are there. I'm not sure if these had paperwork or not. This one didn't. I'm not finding a date stamp either. It just says "COLEMAN 523 MD" on the frame.

An older couple near me has some property turned family antique store. Called one day and they were having a clearance. The parents are retired but just happened to be there.  Asked the guy if he had any old tools or coleman stuff. He went digging back in an old barn and came out with the box. Looked in, saw the original packing and knew i was in luck...

I get stuff at yard sales by asking but never any unfired stuff. Sound like a good day. Good luck in future as well
