    Hi, Just to show the quality that Primus was producing from their factories here are a few shots of an unused Mint Primus 4, dated for 1939, the year WW2 broke out.

    Unfortunately the cardboard box did not last as well as the stove but the label is nice.

    The Primus 4 is a 1.5 pint stove with a rather small and neat silent burner. I think it is a sister stove to the Primus 0, which is the roarer.

    Primus 4's seem to be rather scarce as you seldom see one on Ebay.

    Regards,
