Hi guys. I’ve been given this primus boxed no5. , with instructions! Suspected never used. Do you have any idea how rare or the history of this model and maybe a value? Thanks

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.
