    This one is the same style as this 510 but of an earlier version. The later one has a plain upper frame.
    It can be compared with the 3 year older 507 that has the same upper frame but the legs riveted to the frame, while this one is spot welded.
    This model was in production for many years and it seems like it has been updated with minor changer during the time but kept the same model number.

    Bo, that is a very nice example of a Primus No.510.
    From catalogues on CCS it seems that they were manufactured from about 1922 and had the elaborate frame similar to yours.
    It is interesting to note that the 510 from 1930 had prominent rivets, while yours has the rivets flush with the top of the frame.

    By 1937 at the latest, the frame had changed to a simpler type.
