    Received this Primus 53 today, the nickel is in very good condition considering age. Came also with the trivet, the original pricker package and the Directions for use in 4 languages with funny names: Engeleska, Hollandska, Sydafrikanska and Malajiska
    Nice box came with it, but no markings.

    Congratulations @Tracer , What a wonderful find. :clap::clap:
    I hope the bottom is in as good a condition as the top without any pin holes.
    I hope you get it going soon so we can see some flame shots.
    Thanks for posting

    Your Primus 53 looks really good.
    The nickel coating is still intact and has protected the steel tank.
    I do not recall seeing one in a better condition.
