    Do you know the age? I think it is 1927.

    @MrAlexxx ,

    That is an excellent old Coleman!! The newest Coleman book lists it date as 1926-1927, so @shagratork , is right in there as to it's age. Robust, reliable, and darned-near bullet proof, these older Coleman stoves are amongst the best of the best, IMHO. I have several stoves from that era, including the #1, which is my most favorite. But, all of them are worth owning, using, and enjoying!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful old Coleman 2C!!! Well done! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Trevor and Doc that's what I saw online for a manufacture date. I'm a sucker for the ornate cast iron grates on the oldies. Not sure what I was thinking but I should of done a two burner flame shot. Oh well just another excuse to have to light it up again. I don't think I'll ever get tired of that hot blast preheat. :)

    Thanks all for your comments.

    Alex

    Evening, Alex,

    Yes, the hot-blast feature on the earliest Coleman stoves is most definitely something to see!! I love mine, too, and as you say, never tire of watching how it works. Fun stuff, eh?!!! Have a good evening, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    P.S. I have a #2, which was, in fact, my first first old Coleman stove. Slightly different than yours, but not much.
