Hi all: Here is my old first model earliest version 1923 Coleman #1. Coleman's first stove finally refurbished. (There were two later versions of this #1 stove) Doc first posted it here in 08' for me before I was able to post photos when it was still a rust bucket. I refurbished a #1 first version about a year ago which is also posted here and was sold on E-bay. I decided it was high time to get around to my trusty but tattered #1 I have had for so many years. The final straw was the Mid-Hills Cailf. Stove Gathering about a year and a half ago when we got stormed upon, blizzard, 70 mi an hour winds and horizontal rain. Try as I did to dry my already rusty stove, the next time I opened it, she was a rusty mess. I tried to do this refurbishment in as a factory correct manner as possible. The paint is semi-gloss as original and I painted all items that were originally painted. I call this a refurbish rather than a restore as this is a user stove. and preservation not perfection was the goal. Mike... These photos show the unique features of the first version of the 1923 Coleman #1. Here she is all refurbished. Note first #1 features: Manual air valve above pump and patents applied for stencil. Note unattached oven. Her cool flame photo Her before picture. Note incorrect air valve knob was replaced.
