    Hello, I just got this Primus No. 5 and I am a little bit confused, on the tank is only marked "Made in Sweden" No year letter. Can you tell me a little bit about the production year of this particular one?
    Thanks!

    Yours is, I think, a late model - post 1954.

    Is there a number stamped on the burner riser?

    Look at this post (and elsewhere in the Reference Gallery):

    A Fine Primus 5, The Last One?

    Nothing on the riser, nothing on the burner neither.

    Yes, middle 1960s - 1970, most likely.
