    It looks like a model 108, which is in the neighborhood of 1933-ish to 1935-ish. Later models (409) had a fold over that goes over the tank bracket on the wall of the stove. This one doesn't so, I'm thinking, it's earlier like the 108.

    Nice stove. I have one like this but it's sitting under a couple of other Prentiss Wabers three burners, so can't extricate it at the mo.

    The model number is either stamped into the front label or embossed depending on the model. Can you get a photo of the label at 800x600 and post it? These models had labels that were very hard to read, but still readable with the right amount of light and shade.

    my 108a has the pump and filler cap all in one but is identical other than the folding piece that covers the tank brackets which mine has, and i found a sale ad that puts the 108 at 1933, hope that helps
