    Hey Steve,

    Is this a recent acquisition? Ebay or at Kobey's?

    Nice!

    I've been buying the occasional item from a guy I met in San Francisco. He hits some good garage sales, has a nose like a bloodhound! Sort of a 'Doc of the Bay'... :lol: :mrgreen:
    He's one of my 'secret sources'... ;)

    Yep, New Old Stock, with just a touch of rust on the pot supports.
    It says;
    US
    1945
    AMERICAN

    I just got out a magnet, the tank isn't steel... but I'm not going to scratch it to check for brass !
