I've been going through my garage lately, sorting out the accumulated stoves I've never found time to do anything meaningful with and came across this early (to me at least) version of the number 1. Someone had got to it before me, and I have had it so long I can't remember where or when I got it. Plainly it has had a bit of a hard time, and been in enemy hands for some of that. The silent burner is perhaps a later modification along with the abominable legs. I've never done anything to this apart from light it a few times years ago, and would be most appreciative of some advice over its age based on the features rather than the add-ons which could have been changed also. There is what looks like a cross (rather than an X ) underneath which looks to be original. There is no script on either flank of the air release screw, nor is there anything inscribed on the side walls of the tank. Still runs rather sweetly, and I'm definitely going to keep this. Not your usual shelf queen I know but it does have the marks and history associated with being used by men, and I respect that in anything old even if it has been butchered somewhat ! Hope the pic's will be helpful. Thank you all kindly in advance, Roger.
