    Won this almost a month ago, dirt cheap since it was missing many parts. Shown is what I received, I have parts to complete, just need a tin. Germany had a embargo against the British, so it is hard to locate models from WWII years. This is AJ for 1945, only one in the SRG that I saw. Missing six of the dated years now, been slow this year.

    Thank you.
    Should clarify, there is one listed in the SRG already.

    Fired up. Nice! No green flames, so must not have been sitting too long.

    Which begs the question where was the rest of it? Or does the green in the flame of long unused stoves originate mostly from the burner / lipstick?
    Regards

    I think parts get lost in transition from deceased owner to heirs or party clearing out a garage or house.
    You wonder where the green comes from, fount or burner. I've had stoves burn green for a minute even three minutes or so.

    stoves that came w/o a tin box (like the Coleman Solus silent ,Juwel 6 and the Vesuvius 100 are rarely found with all the parts. Took me 10 years to find a juwel flame spreader. I had to buy a few Solus silent burners before I found one with a pan ring. I lucked out with my Vesuvius. It came in a cardboard box marked Vesuvius 100 with all the parts.
    Green is from oxidized brass ?

    I've gotten lucky when buying parts I needed that had parts I had no need for at the time, then in later years realized I had the part for a stove I wanted.

    @Doug L I now have four Vesuvius 100 stoves none of them complete. I finally got an unbroken original top grate and an original wrench. Still missing the pricker. By the way I was looking at them the other day and noticed that one of them has an original lipstick burner. The others have square removable jets. Interesting.

    You do realize we're going to need a post in which you cover each year in minute detail. :lol:

    All one has to do is read the well written doc, not by me, I don't write well.

    I'm not too good at explaining or describing processes. Need to start seeing what my succession should be.
