    Christer: The Ernie Pyle stove of 1941 has 4 legs. The later post war 530 is similar in design and appearance but has no legs no spare generator and the side supports are mounted directly to the tank also the 530 uses an aluminum canister with handle support instead of steel without. Most data states that only about 1000 of the 520 nickel Ernie Pyle type were made. I don't know how to link but there are several picstures of Ernie with the stove on the net including the picture you speak of. Coleman site has some too. Mike...
