    Ok, I've never seen a 111 with a nickel-plated tank before. Thanks. I bought it yesterday. Saw it online and threw in a bid. Can't wait for it to arrive in the mail.

    I also have this white knob on a stove. Is this from nickel-plated original?

    Hi. Twodogs excellent post:

    Putting a date to Optimus 111

    Reports that Op.111 stoves produced in the 1950s were supplied with Cookie-cutter spindle key available in Black, White, Red, or Green.

    There does not seem to have been any obvious pattern as to which colour of regulator knob was fitted on a particular Op.111 stove.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
