Hi all, a few months ago, I bought a second M1950. As has been mentioned before on this forum, stoves tend to breed! And indeed, I now have 3 of these . The first 2 ones are Coleman's, made in 1952 and sitting in a Rogers & Akront 1952 canister. Now, N°3 is also made in 1952 but this time by Rogers & Akront! Its canister is also an R & A 1952 one. There are 2 differences, the canister of the R & A stove has "US" added above the name, the others haven't. Both Colemans come in a shiny darkish green, the R & A is matte green. My first M1950 came without spanner, the R & A came with 2 so now all 3 have their own spanner . All three were unfired, so I decided it was time to light at least one of them... Only thing needed was to replace the seal in the pumpknob as it had completely hardened by age. The middle canister has US above the name & year, not easy to see in the photo, sorry! Now, time to go to the outdoor kitchen (needs a good clean after a long winter ) Come on baby, light my fire! And gentlemen, this was when my batteries ran out of juce! Never mind, we'll come back later with fresh batteries and less light And after the priming; loverly flame shots Imediatelly after shut-off: Hope you liked these All the best, Wim P.S., forgot to mention, these stoves burn very hot, or not! Only positions are full blast and off .
