    I do like the older American double burners. I have a few early Prentiss Wabers models and a Coleman 1 is high on my wish list. The vertical tank sets this AGM apart (well as far as I know). Congratulations on a fine stove.

    Seems I remember the Model 3 came in three sizes: a small and large 2-burner, similar to the Coleman 425 and Coleman 413, and then a larger a 3-burner,,, all called the Model 3... Even then, there were variations/modifications in the design. The one example I have, the smallest, was made 1924 or later, with the attached folding legs and “wings”...

    Welcome Peter, thank you.

    re Haggis:
    I do like the No.3s and do not want to be a counterpoint but have a few comments.
    I can't relate to seeing any size variations to the No.3s (not yet. i have that to look fwd to?).
    There are AGM stove variations very similar in appearance to No.3 but those would have a different model# as i recall.
    From what I've seen, design variations of the AGM No.3s are few.
    One unique No.3 I can recall is Scouterjan's, which he states is "different".

    As it turns out Peter's No.3 is also "different".
    Re his "early 1920s" vintage: with nameplate as a guide, i "want" to say it's c.1920 and that's probably accurate but as a confirmed detail, for now I'd say it's "pre-1922"
    Re "pre-1922" examples it would typically have:
    "peg legs and removable top".
    Putting aside that Peter's has such tall legs.
    Of the many examples so far, if there is a hinged top, that began c.1922 and of those, we see a combination: "hinged top & grate and curved legs" (of that typical combination his has only the hinged top).

    Back to Haggis comment of variations / modifications... (again tall legs aside) this one having peg legs with hinged top is an example we've not yet seen, iirc. This is interesting, thanks again.

    This old add, showing an earlier version of the legs, mentions the 3 sizes...

    Seems like many of these stove models lived in tradition. Something like: early, late early, early late, and late,,, finally a new model would come along.
