    Excellent post @wasser and welcome to CCS.

    Great collection of Meta kit you have.

    Take a look at THIS catalogue from the 1930's. It contains this page for the Meta 70.

    This website is a treasure box!
    I have an interest in collecting camp stoves. The website provides me with valuable information and pictures.
    Unfortunately I don't have a permission to view the page with catalogue.
    Look at my collection of camp stoves.

    @wasser dobro pozhalovat' ,
    Excellent post.
    Credit to presscall for the "70" catalog page to make post even better.
    I suggest subscribing to the site to allow you access to such catalog details and hopefully you might match more pages to your "collection of camp stoves".
    A very nice collection and well presented :thumbup:.

    Your updates (last 2 images) and anything old META is fantastic imo, thank you.
    I wonder how a 70 differs from a 71 or 75 or if they might be the same size pots and supports.
    -------------------------------
    Re all the way at top, the OP: Meta-70
    for search purposes i'll add text from the familiar old Meta maker's mark:
    D.R.G.M.

    Made in Switzerland
    META S.A.
    BASLE
    trademarked META

    MOD. DEP.
    ---------------
    Elsewhere on CCS I recall re DRGM is 'Deutsches Reichs Gebrauchs Muster' in-use pre-1945.
    Interesting: use of Juwel 33 type stove in a meta 50, I myself don't recall seeing that before and may have to try it.

    As I can see - 71 is a simplier version of 70 without egg boiler and tea infuser and with a cheaper lid while 75 is an updated 70 with new burner stand and egg boiler and maybe slightly larger but that could just be a difference in how to specify the capacity.

    I just love those vintage folding sporks - perfect in small cooksets.
    We fettlers tend to try new combinations of burners and windshields/cookware when we already know the original sets.

    I have not seen the fork/spoon combo before and the bale top flasks are a nice addition.
    Neat stuff.
