    No embossed metal work, and the decals are peeled, faded, and otherwise half-illegible:

    Hi viscott
    This looks like a Coleman Bushman I think the model could be a 404 or 484 (the number is printed on the front label and is only about 1mm high and the ink on the middle number has run together so it's a round shape) Mine was made in Australia by arrangement with The Colemam Lamp and Stove Co Ltd of Canada.Hope this helps.

    Well, i figured it out:

    It is a Coleman Model 6J.

    You can see on the close up of the badly faded label (inside of the lid) that there's a faint, "Coleman Model No# ..." Well, I took the close up image and threw it into a photoediting program, and messed around with the brightness, contrast, color values until them pixels relinquished their secret. 6 J. Comparing the stove to the other 6J in the reference gallery pretty much seals it.

    It's a dead ringer for my 404 Bushman, an excellently usable item. Mine goes to group camps (as long as I dont have to carry it!), the last time it was on tea and coffee detail as the only open flame cooker there, the rest were sundry gas fired BBQ's. Fast and easy lighter but somewhat less than enthusiastic when both burners are maxed out. That part could just be my one.

    Nice score.

    Pretty much the case for all Coleman suitcase stoves. Plus, you always need to play with both the main and secondary valves when the second burner is used. That is part of the fun for stovies since cooking is often just an excuse to use the stove, but I know it irritates some cooks.
