    @Rangie, you've found ANOTHER variant! I thought the short clip you were referring to was from a M1950, but no! That's it's own tube and clip for a spare genny, along with the full length tube for spares! Mea culpa, and nice find!

    My 520 has the same generator clip.
    If I could find it I would post some photos!

    Looks like it's been repainted (color is "greener" than original and surface is uneven). This could also explain the faintness of the tank stamp.

    Hi Rangie very nice indeed, pity about the tin though but still very nice indeed.

    Up until a few years ago, i had very little interest in Coleman product's, my main interest in the hobby was in vintage Swedish pattern products blowlamps Stoves Lantern's.
    I believed even vintage product's from Coleman looked too modern in looks and in operation, i even gave a way a 533, i bought brand new and only used it a few times.

    But in the last few years, i have fallen in love with these products old and new, and have now building up a small very much loved collection, Well done their Rangie
