    Snagged this bad boy on the 'Bay for a decent price and just showed up today. Will try to post some more pics later. Date code on the fuel line block is 982. This one is going in the closet with my unfired in unopened box Optimus 111 kero that I bought from a gentleman on here several years back and my unfired Borde.

    BTW, the $80 price tag, adjusted for inflation, would be $215 in today's dollars.

    I almost pulled the trigger on that. Glad someone here can appreciate it.

    I saw that too but I have 11 MSR stoves and didn't get paid yet.

    It's actually the second one in a week. The first was unused and had the original box but was missing the bag and wrapping paper around the stove/cup. I had been eyeing it when someone got it. This one was never even taken out of the bag.
