The one Shackleton abandoned on South Georgia, even better.

If money was not an issue...
All of them.
I thinking of that stove as well. I remembered seeing it here somewhere but couldn't remember its name. If money were no object you and I could fund an expedition to retrieve Shackleton's stove from South Georgia island.
That would be grand, Ben.
Were it to be found I expect it could be fuelled up (if not already) primed and would soon be boiling snow to make the first brew with it after its hundred years in hibernation.
Might be as well to take a Fettlebox kit along as a precaution ... there, I'm anticipating it already.
Hi Ben, perhaps one of these was the post you saw mention of the stove used in the rescue voyage:
Nope, it was this post about a Comet 6. I finally found it which would have been much easier if I hadn't forgotten the name of the stove! Damn, I'm getting old.
I'm currently listening to the audiobook "Endurance" by Alfred Lansing which was recommended by someone here. I already listened to "South" by Earnest Shackleton sometime back. A story worth hearing twice.
This is my Holy Grail. Moat's folding stove No. 1 with oven, which is one the earliest Prentiss Wabers stoves, if not the earliest. Even the No. 2 at the bottom of the ad would suffice. Circa 1915 or 1916 or thereabouts. Edwin Moats filed his patent in 1913 and looks like it was out on the street in 1915, then Prentiss Wabers took him out.
Nobody has mentioned THE "Bomb"!
I may have to make one because it would be easier than making a "9"!
Sam, that is a really cool stove.

Any back pack, bike bag, size, stove & cookset combo that I do not allready have, which is a svea 123r or optimus climber. I do hope you find yours. Best Regards Optimust.
I alert you to this 4 year old thread as you have an interest in the "grail stove" answers. Above I did not give a *specific model, sorry.
My wish list from 4 years ago has evolved. Some cherished items acquired in the meanwhile, some were on the list, some were not. There are fewer "want to haves" on my evolving list each year, a list that may never end.
* One 1880s I'll not mention.
* I hope to luck into a Borde (I should have pulled trigger years ago before they were a thing).
Not "grail" stoves per se but:
* about any pre 1920 brassie I see offered has potential to make me trigger happy.
* stoves of world history significance (ie served in war...).
In the meanwhile: I've satisfied my urge to splurge on an Ernie Pyle. Globe Gas Light Co. & Primus US stoves are also done.
If money was no object then I’d own Doc Marks hobbit hole.
I guess I am easy to please. I waited for over seven years to find a nice Optimus 111 that I could afford and I now have one. I don’t want or need anything more rare. Obviously I am not a collector but am a stove user. I am happy and contented. Brad
I've said that to all my therapists @BradB.
The ICBC doesn’t have THAT much money.
