    This stove looks fantastic but in reality looks to be a budget model. The brass is quite thin compared to a standard stove. I don't know the age of this model but I believe it to be the later of two models I know of. I used to have the same model in plain brass but with more tank inscriptions & no decal - from memory it had the towns Glasgow, Manchester & London stamped in the tank - Veritas regional offices - this one doesn't.

    This one has RM stamped on the burner which I'm pretty sure is original (doesn't look to have had enough use to warrant a replacement), reinforcing the theory that RM made stoves for Veritas at one time. The NRV is a little different from the norm.

    I have just acquired one of these at a steam rally! Looked a little different to the standard stove design. Is this model common or desirable? Anyone know the model number?

    Maybe the non return valve can help date this stove, to within a few years. Obviously it was used on the Veritas as shown, it was also used on Monitor and Valor stoves, and quite probably other British manufacturers. A Valor stove I have, is dated 1948, which has the same NRV.

    Model number I haven't got a clue, rarity - very
