    Hi you have a nice, apparently un-used Primus No.5, made by the Primus Trading Co. which was formed in 1962, so manufactured after 1962, probably in the mid -1960s.

    Your stove might have a six letter numerical code stamped on the riser tube between the tank and silent burner. If so, the last two letters give the manufacturing year of the stove.
