    Hi @Celsius233 The box with the wire carrying handle is earlier. The later model has the long metal latch closure for the lid.

    If you look through the Op.00 models in the Reference gallery you will see more boxes and suggested dates. Many Op.96 stoves seem to have been sold as the K=Karton model in a small cardboard box rather than a a tin.....it was cheaper.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Three little beauties you have Héctor.
    The photo of the stoves burning in a windy location certainly demonstrates the effectiveness of the windshield. :thumbup:
