    I just got this beauty and I'm trying to determine it's age. There is nothing written on the bottom of the tank. I noticed that the "N" in patent is odd writing and I do not realize if it is written so intentionally or it's a manufacturing error. Help, please!

    That's kinda pretty in an old "bar slut" kinda way :shock: ....well used. No dating suggests pre 1911, or post 63....but I would have thought that pre 1911 would have an external NRV but I am too new to this to have much validity in my observations. The burner top looks unique, but I am sure someone with more "know" than me will step in shortly. I like the stove...

    ...and Merry Christmas

    I'd say pre-1911, with a replacement burner from an unknown (to me at least!) manufacturer. Very nice stove!

    Best regards,

    I've been looking for more information about this burner, but I have't found anything yet...anyway, today I wanted to see her in action...powerful and not very noisy flame.
