    Congrats and thank you for posting.
    That is stunningly beautiful NOS, just amazing. We will like to know *the year stamped on tank.
    Right you are... 518 not on CCS Primus model list, I think yours is 1st such example we've seen.
    Per *1939 catalog this range is designated a model No. 518/3 .
    518 for having it's No. 4047 silent burners.
    518/3 for having green enameled frame and chrome tanks.

    Welcome to the site btw.
    Your stove is a rare beauty. I'll add FYI, that it fits in an unfired "collectible" NOS niche, so long as it remains unfired.
    A rare stove with rare burners. You might want to get more familiar with 4047 burner:
    dday has that burner on his '37 Primus 57 , kerophile :thumbup: had the last word in that thread as he links us to a "Primus 110" where he provides more 4047 burner detail.

    Ask that in “Valuations”… but: As an unfired stove of that age and make, a price will be difficult to set. It will be what a very keen collector wants to pay you.

    I’m sure there are European collectors who would desire that stove greatly.
