    Hey folks! Went to the market today and scored this.
    Appears to be unfired. Oiled the leather pump cup but there is hissing from the filler cap. Have new cap gaskets on the way.
    This is my 1st legit find!
    Who ever owned this also clipped 6 poprivets to the grate. No idea why! Anyone?
    Also trying to date it. I can find no numbers other than 413e.
    Thank you
    Paul.
    Also. Sorry if this is in the wrong spot

    413 is where it's at, Coleman suitcase-wise.

    Splendid score.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm more of a reader than a poster. Especially on stuff that I'm less experienced in.


    The outside has rust. Not nearly as nice as the inside. It appears to be unfired.

    Would you any of you not use this stove?

    Is there any point to having a stove that isn't used? At least until you get to the point where there are too many to use. 413s are the most versatile of the Coleman suitcase stove IMHO, as they are small enough to pack well but big enough to hold decent size pots for group cooking. If forced to have only one suitcase I'd go with a 413.

    To find the date of the stove look on the 2 clips that hold the fuel tank onto the stove. It should be stamped there.

    I am an advocate for unfired stoves, but I say this one is a keeper and to light it.

    Kinda how I'm leaning. If it was NOS I would probably pass it on to someone that is more of a collector, but I am a user.
    I'm more knowledgeable about firearms than stoves. But I'm assuming the same rules apply. Condition is everything. The interior being unused, but the exterior having character. Is a perfect combo for the user in my eyes. Less than stellar for collectibility, but mechanically perfect for usage.

    Nothing. Haggis (on another forum) said its pre 58.

    I'm firing it.


    Used the filler cap off my 502 and it held pressure great. Check valve was leaking so I spritzed some wd40 in there and it worked great. Did the pressure test on the pump and it was good.

    Currently burning off old filler cap gasket. I thought it was missing and it was so hard I assumed it was bare metal! A lil torching proved that wrong.

    I see some rust in the tank where moisture leaked in thru the filler cap. Filler hole has rust on the mouth & inside. Kinda scaly. Im going to clean that up but what should I do with inside the tank?

    I would put some fuel in and dump it out in a white-like container to see for crap. I use yogurt containers that have the #2 recycle code. HDPE.
    Keep doing that till it is clean. (If there is crap at all).

    Great score, the 413 is my favorite suitcase stove. Even if I need more burners, I'm likely to pull out a second 413 than the 426.

    Should I put an agitator in there? Like Steel BBs.
