    AT 9 - A pretty late version of these, I think.
    Not too badly pitted for being a steel stove, and no bad rust to speak of.

    I think this steel tank Primus is in the best condition I have seen.
    As you say, it must be one of the very late versions - but it is still looking good at 61 years old.
    Even so, I am glad that Primus did not go down the route of persisting with the steel models like some other manufacturers did.
    Steel = rust.

    Yes, this one is in good nick. There are as you can see some surface rust on top of the tank on the opposite side as the embossed Primus text, but it's not so bad.
    I actually think it's possible to polish it away to make it less significant, but it would also mean that some of the dull nickelplating would be removed or damaged.
    It's better to keep it as it is.
