    Interesting label on the tin... Natick labs is the US Army's Research and Developement facility, for rations and kitchen equipment, amongst others.
    Looks like Gordon was right, a small batch made for testing, probably didn't work out for whatever reason.

    Thanks for the extra views of this oddity. I wonder if these ever got into the 'field'?

    They probably went straight into the development of the MIWH.

    Just looking at the stove, somehow it says 60's to me. The style, labeling, verbiage, etc. seem to be from that era. I think this stove preceded the MIWH/CFV by quite a number of years. Indeed, I rather suspect that the stove shown predates MSR let alone the CFV stove.

    Very interesting and undoubtedly rare.

    I have one of these little stoves. Mine does not have the Natick, Mass label on it. I have a piece of paper that lists the model number as T58-2. I had thought that the stove was probably made in 1958. I got the stove from my grandfather who had worked at Natick as a contractor. Mine also has etched on the surface the number 47. I will try to send some pics.

    Here is what it says on the first paragraph of the paper that I have with my stove


    STOVE, INDIVIDUAL T58-2
    CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
    (Information in addition to the cover case decal)
    When burner flame fails to maintain proper ignition (after approximately 40 hours of operation) the stove is to be turned in to the higher maintenance echelon (2nd) for cleaning of carbon accumulation from the generator and flame valve.
