As the ICCC (International Coleman Collectors Club) webpage is currently down for non-payment, my source for dating this one is also unavailable. My memory says early 1940's. A fine example of an early American backpacking stove. No wimps, those Yanks. Shown here with a dinky little European backpacking stove for size comparisons. The stove with about a 1/4 tank of fuel weighs in at 21 US pounds (9.5kg). It's not uncommon to find these old standbys fitted with a handlebar mounting clip for use by American touring bicyclists. While the case is untouched since acquisition, the grills, burners, manifolds and generator have been cleaned and overhauled. Enjoy!
