    Bo, this is yet another beautiful stove.
    It is interesting that it is from 1936.
    The only mention of it in the CCS documents is in a 1914 catalogue, here.
    Obviously, by 1936 its design had changed. It looks the same as this Primus 516 from 1935.

    I haven't find this model in any catalogue, only 514 and 516. 514 has roarer burner an 516 silent without cleaning device so I guess this is same as 516 but with other burners.
    Obviously very different from the early 515. I wonder why they used the same number, it should no be hard to find out a new number.

    @optipri I'm beginning to think you have a thing for green stoves. I thought your Matador but this is over the top. What a great stove and in such good condition. Congratulations!
