    I recently found a model 431 stove at a yard sale. It is in used condition but not"trashed". I paid $8 US for it(found it in Ohio),and just wondered what kind of dollars they go for. I have not fired it up so I do not know for sure if it works but the guy I bought it from said it does(for what that is worth). Any help you guys can give me would be appreciated.

    Welcome to CCS.
    I cannot help you with that. I do not know the 431.
    Canadian made?

    Looks like several on Ebay for ~$40. Most appearing in Canada, so yes suggestive of a Canadian model.

    It's a Coleman suitcase, $8 is about right. I bet it does work, and with a little care your grandkids will be using it.

    Yes,it is Canadian manufacture,that is one reason I bought it. Looks like a 1984 date although some other number,a 4 and a 1 also are stamped on the fin but inverted in relation to the 84.

    I assumed Coleman too, but was wondering if it was in fact a 413. So, Canadian.

    Canadian Easi-Lite model .The o-rings in the valve should be replaced or at least checked and lubed.
    When they get old and dry they can leak .A lot of Easi-Lites will have scorch marks on the red vlve wheel.

    Yep, got one, needed the O rings replaced, paid $5 probably worth $8 now. Good buying don't sell it for less than $10.
