Here are my plain Jane beauties I have acquired recently. The Coleman 413G (1970) I found last summer with box, looked like only a test firing before I laid hands on it. Of course it has cooked many meals cooking for seven on our hardshell camper trips. The Coleman 425E (1979) I just found, again looking like maybe only a single test firing in its life. It came with the mixing tube bent at about 15° and the generator could not insert and still have the tabs on the tank hook into the slots on the body. Nervously, I bent it straight, scared I would crack the U shaped mixing tube. But it seems to be behaving properly. The Coleman 502 (1971) was the typical rusty and dirty mess, but it did work upon testing. I immediately tore it down, cleaned, and reassembled. It works great, a solid performer. All three stoves may not be the glamorous equal of their European cousins, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love the solid build and reliable performance of all three Plain Janes.
