There is no discoloring on the heat shield, so I'm calling this 1943 520 stove unfired. The tip cleaner lever was broken so that has been replaced. The cook pots are in pretty rough shape, but they kept the stove safe and dry for the last 70 years. I am currently cleaning them up.  I have plenty of other single burners, none of which are 520s.

That's a nice 520. Too bad the canister had to sacrifice itself. It may be able to be brought back to life.

True confessions: I have had in my hands, unfired, the following stoves: Optimus 99, 8R, Coleman 550B, 413G, 425E, 400B. Lanterns: two 285, two 288. Not counting stuff I bought new. None remain unsullied, it is not in my nature to leave them be. Glad someone does.

I fired the Xcursion once for the novelty of it but the rest are unfired. E. [49569544118_f6c1baf35d]  [49570273367_a4b66b1d88]

Found what I think is my first unfired. It’s a 5/69 Red 200.

A few scrapes on the paint. But the burner/gen is shiny, it will remain unfired in my collection. (Missing the bale as its a little tarnished, currently sitting in some evaporust)

Not sure why my pictures came out sideways. Probably because I’m posting from my iPhone.

I'm pretty sure this one is unfired, too:

It’s a odd one.

It has a 1200 fount, but it doesn’t have the 1200 igniter, and the box is stamped 200. Which I think is the only difference between the two, Igniter or no igniter.
Either it’s a left over parts assembled or special spec for military. Thats why I assume it didn’t get used, the fount has a small dent. I’m probably going to light it up, I just haven’t decide when, I feel like it should be a special occasion.

My knowledge in the lantern world is very limited though.

Wow, a beauty.  As you have limited knowledge in the lantern world, would take $15 US for it?🙂

Joel,

Make certain it's a really special occasion because firing it up will seriously devalue it.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?


I've missed you!  But I'm reloading.

You would be correct - the 200 is non-flame thrower.

And was always a avid outdoorsman. I did not collect GPAs when he died and I thought this certain box was full of junk that I just didn’t have the time to go through. Well it was mostly junk except for this treasure. Thanks dad

I paid a little more than I wanted but managed to get them down to make it more bearable. But when your on a cold streak you just have to break it. At least that’s what I told my wife😉.

Found today: Canadian 639 dated 2-83 with box and accessories. 

There's kero in the fount and the mantle has been burned in (it fell off) but it never got fired up. The generator is nice and shiny.
