    This is a later #2, after Coleman decided to split the line into the #2 (with oven) and the #9 (without oven). The #2 became a more deluxe model, with nickel plated strap-type legs. The #9 had a wire grate, but the #2 kept the sheet steel cover with stove-style cast grates. This stove still has the air inlet stem above the pump knob, the latest #2's did away with that feature. This stove has a model 1 badge with the #1 drilled out and a "2" stamped below.

    These stoves could be used with the #1 stove stand, which was still available at the time, and had slots in the lid to fit the support arms of the stand. The stove is very compact, the grate and stand fold to fit inside the case.

    This stove was found at an antique shop in excellent condition, all I did was polish the paint and clean it up. It works very well.

    Hi, StanDahl,

    Outstanding #2, and in very nice condition, too! I, too, have a #two, and it I will be bringing it to the upcoming CASG #8, along with several other early Coleman stoves, including two #1's. Any chance you could join us, and bring your nice #2 for us to enjoy seeing? I know that I am not alone in wanting to see your stove grate, especially, as those are a rare item, which is seldom found with the original stoves. I'd really appreciate being able to make some measurements, and photographs of your grate, if you would be so kind as to join us for the Gathering, and I think you would very much enjoy meeting a bunch of other CA/AZ Stovies!! Thanks for sharing, and hope to see you at the Gathering next month! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Thank you for sharing you're beautiful piece of camping history. Such good original condition too. Probably owned by someone who camped once or twice, stored their stove in a dry attic, and forgot about it. All that stove needs is an old Airstream and a vintage car to pull it with.
