    Just given to me the other day. Per Terry Marsh's site, a Coleman Distributor in Los Angeles, CA, USA had these made. Neat features, bent rod moves secondary burner valve, clips in back of case to secure burner assembly, NRV in bottom of pump tube similar to Coleman 242A lanterns and similar stoves from that period. Was finally told what the valve on the tank does, heater valve to warm generator.

    Sweet.

    So, opening the heater valve drips fuel into a trough for preheating the generator?

    Duane,

    Did Prentiss Wabers manufacture this stove exclusively for Coleman or did they manufacture it for retailers to sell too? Possibly under another Model No?

    Ken, thank you for the reply.

    If anyone knows if this Model No was manufactured for anyone other than Coleman, even if it was the same stove but had a different Model No, I'd be grateful.

    Also, can anyone tell me what year/s these stoves were manufactured in?
