    This is what I believe to be the "first generation" 27 series Trangia.
    50's style box and labeling.
    TAL logos.
    Leather strap.
    Wire pot supports with metal band strap holding the pot supports to the windscreen.
    Upper windscreen has the support for the burner.
    Fry pan does not have a rolled edge, and is rather thick aluminum.
    Burner is early style, and has the riveted on, flip type simmer ring. TAL logo on bottom.

    Other items of note:
    The early 27 series are dimensionally different (smaller) than later 27 series. I believe this size difference went well into the 1960's.
    There is only one pot shown in the instructions. This set only came with one pot. I do not know if there are supposed to be two. The pot does not have any measurement stampings on it. It does have a rolled edge.
    The ventilation holes in the upper windscreen extend all the way to the edge, and slightly extend into the curve where it seats into the lower base.
    The ventilation holes in the lower windscreen (4 rows of 28 holes) extend quite a ways around. One (each) of the rivets for the strap brackets go through the upper outermost hole.

    I do not have the pot grabber (or it has gone missing at this time).

    Nice.
    Interesting to see how the burner has evolved. I like the sealing cap design better. I have an Early '80s burner with a clip-on simmer ring [w/o top plate-snuffer]
    I just pulled the trigger on a brand new 25 HA.

    After doing a little more looking around, I think it is safe to say that the fry pan with my kit pictured above is not the original early style.
    I have a couple other "early" 27 bases and windscreens, which have noticeable differences to the one pictured above. I'll post pics of those soon.
