    Hi all, have a question. While my Wife and I were out checking the antique shops and flea market venues, I ran across an old Coleman stove, that I hadn't seen before. I should have taken a picture of it, because I forgot the model number. It was fairly heavy, and a 3 burner model. The thing that got me was, the tank remained inside, and the gas valve came out a hole in the main body, right by the carry handle. I have never seen one like it before. It was traditional green, and felt quite a bit heavier then any of my 2 burner models, or 3 burner models I have handled. I should have just bought it because it was only 10 bucks. it was pretty rough paint wise on the lid. I've looked and looked through pictures, but I can't find any with the gas valve knob, coming out the front. It didn't look modified, as the hole was perfect. It was in a tight area and there was too much foot traffic for me to get it out to really get a good look. Any ideas?? Thanks for any help.
    Regards Sonny

    OK, I should have researched a little more. I see it is a 420 with the cast iron burner.......There is definitely a wealth of knowledge here.......

    Yep, that was it. I think I may go back and get it. It's a little rough paint wise, but may be pretty solid other wise......Thank you for your reply

    The tank comes out of the case for use.
