    USA Medical emblem on box and stove.
    The emblem seen here on the stainless lid of the box that has an aluminum bottom.

    The other identifier is on the tank.

    I got a wrench later from Lanternking.

    Instructions clearly defined.

    And flame shots. The pre-heat flame must have been at least eight inches in the air.

    Hi Ken. Fantastic stove. The preheat flames on these things are something to see, (they really get your heart beating, at least for me). Nice flame shots. My Agm doesnt have the medical symbol on the top.

    Ken,

    Yep, that's the emblem alright. This one is the most common.

    Love the preheat flames! So exciting.

    The 'USA MD' is also only on certain 523s. I think it is a Coleman only thing. I haven't seen that on others.
