    Coleman 500 Date B 47 made in the USA. Runs on coleman fuel but seems just as happy running on panel wipe at half the price. These are heavy old stoves with loads of character and very easy to light. This and the coleman 530 are my favs, :) well until I find a 520 [-o< [-o< [-o<

    Great stove Den; 500's are my favorite single burner for camping and the 520 for backpacking. The 500 is built like a brick. I knocked one over a cliff about 35 yrs. ago. I retrieved it although a little banged up it lit on the first try and cooked breakfast. They are a winner in my book. Mike..

    Your right about built like a brick Mike, for a single burner as well. They should have put wheels on it for hikers. I love it, I have got to thank dday for delving into his collection for me again. Doubt I would have found one over here.
