    Couldn’t resist this unused 71 with box and papers. Have a well-running user-71, so I might keep it unfired.

    My thanks to staff for inserting "1956" into title.

    Congrats @Harder D. Soerensen ,
    It's beautiful, an excellent reference, +1 w/Martin.
    During the mid 50s, piece by piece, Primus introduced "BAHCO" on packaging & items.
    Re the box for 1956 P71 it seems: early 56 had A/B B.A. Hjorth & Co. and later in 56 had BAHCO, like yours.

    I am sorry for hitting you for "details" but your 56 is representative of the changes to BAHCO that were underway.
    Yours:
    Tin has B.A. Hjorth & Co.
    Box has BAHCO.
    What name is on the flipside of that swing tag (BAHCO or Hjorth)?
    What name is on the flipside of the 4605 pricker package (BAHCO or Hjorth)?
    Instructions two Qs: What Co. name is on instructions (BAHCO or Hjorth)? What is Printer detail?
    (ie Ernst Westerbergs Boktryckerf A.-B. Stockholm Sweden, 364. 54. 3.)
    Thanks in advance for info. and thanks for posting it and i gotta run, will check back (by tomorrow).

    PS, interesting that it came with 4606 prickers also.

    Unfired, the stove does not get better than that, it is a beauty. You can refer to
    the user to know how a 71 works, & savour the pristine one as it is. Best regards. Optimust.
