    The stove that came in that tin had for sure the year code in a ring central under the fount.

    Hi @Lennart F the link I posted to my cased 1959 Pr. 96 shows a
    very similar case to that shown by @It’l Dodat.
    The date code for my stove was stamped on one of the stove feet.

    Didn't know they had that sort of tins that late - maybe the last ones were used up in '59:-k

    Thanks a on fellas... One more, The instructions sheet is in the tin --- would it reduce the value if I laminate it to preserve it?

    Regards

    IMG_20210918_073825.jpg To those that were waiting for the date I'm truly sorry I kinda lost track of this one - please forgive

    So I had a look - I'll look at the feet tonight, but here are photos of the spirit tin (which is not corroded) Took me a while to get the top loose though, And the instruction sheet

    On the underside is a circle with AV 2 stamped within the circle.

    I think the key to the date is on the instruction sheet - see the numbering on the full size photo?

    Many thanks for that info is this a particularly desirable example? Or just a “run of the mill”--- Does the tin add to this?

    It is a desirable example of a classic Primus No.96 outfit.
    However I do not give valuations....
    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    @It'l Dodat
    Warren,
    i thank kerophile and yourself for dating, for details and for addl. detailed images, nice :thumbup::thumbup:.

    re "is this a particularly desirable example?"
    desirable model i would say: yes, and
    year '56 Hjorth... not "old" relatively speaking but i give that too a definite: yes, imo.

    Or just a “run of the mill”---
    i guess depends on availability near you, for me
    no,
    there are no “run of the mill” 96s ("Primus", i would prefer 62 or earlier).

    Does the tin add to this?
    yes definetly.

    btw, kerophile is not offering valuation.
    I suggest as always, >ebay search Primus 96 > completed sales.
    I expect you'll be pleased.

    there is a valuations section on the site but for your well known, popular model you should get what you seek from ebay search.
    thx again

    Thanks OMC
    I'm not in it for the bucks, more for the fun of owning it, especially here in this tiddly piece of real estate called South Africa, where there ain't much in the way of little cookers ---- I've amassed a reasonable collection (if you browse my postings) and for the fun of finding yet another 90g Gaz cannister ( My collection now stands at 9 :D/ AND I got's a light for a 90 grammer :D/That's the fun.

    My son? he can be bothered about the value :whistle: one day
