    This example looks like it has had little use, judging from the condition of the burner lipstick and pot stand legs.

    Very nice! The "V" stamped on the bottom of the tank shows it was made in 1931 - so pretty good condition for a stove nearly 90 years old!

    The very first stove I purchased when I started earning was a Primus 96.
    I wish it had come with that type of wonderful 'The Pocket Primus Outfit' tin, but by the time I bought my 96, the were long gone.
    By the way, I still have that first Primus 96 and it is in perfect condition.
