    Cleaning out my Dad’s stuff & found 2 of these. Ours has a handle attached on top of box. Also, they came with small “fire proof” blankets & a syringe looking thing.
    Dad was military & did spend time in Europe. Not sure when he was stationed in Germany. There is even home videos of a parade & Castro was on one of the floats.
    I have read some of the posts about this CCS. My production guess is 1950-1955.

    Wondered if anyone had a better guess of production. Thank you.

    Hi @Sandra . It is not easy to estimate the production date of Phoebus 625 stove outfits. However, for your stoves, I reckon 1950s, on the basis of posts on this thread:

    Phoebus No.625 from the 1950s

    The pump device and plastic tubing, which you call a syringe, could be for pumping or syphoning gasoline from a vehicle fuel tank or container. Perhaps something along these lines:

    Primus 75 pump?

    PW gasoline syphon -- 1932 advertisement

    Trust this helps.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    Hi, this might be the one! Made by the German stove manufacturer Enders:

    Enders Syphon No:980

    Welcome to the forum. You have inherited a coup of lovely stoves fro your Father and there are plenty of new friends here who can offer tips and advice.
