    This is my old Coleman 500 stove dated B38. It was manufactured in Canada between April and June 1938. At the moment, it would be the oldest known Coleman 500, but it works like new.

    Nice one! I've got the US version just like it and when I replaced the generator its flame licks the grate when it's on high. You might try cleaning or replacing yours if you want optimal performance.

    Cheers! Jerry

    A lovely early example of the Coleman 'spiderweb' stove :D

    Hi Metropolitantrout,

    I changed the generator. I have many spare parts with my stove. You were right, the flame is really better now.

    The flame is very clear. This is the same flame outside by a cloudy day and inside.

    very nice, 1 st year for the Canadian 500, I think mine is a C/38. The 90 degree bend light lever was only used in 1938
