    Hi,

    I am stating to wonder how many types of 123 lids there are.

    In the photograph below are four lids and two lids for the mini-pump.

    Left to right, lid that came from the parallel sided mini-pump I bought new from A&H in the U.S.A, lid that came from the angld mini-pump that I bought new in the U.K. from Base Camp, slotted lid from a late 50’s or early 60’s Sievert 123, (no concentric rings on burner head) a lid from a mid 50’s Sievert 123 (Everything on that stoved is engraved with Sievert, the key, the burner plate, burner head and lid),(no concentric rings on burner head) lid from an Optimus 123R and finally a lid from a 60’s 123 Sievert 123.(concentric rings on burner head).


    The next photo – the lids are in the same order but shown from below.

    The next photo is the two min-pumps.

    Final photo shows very long engraved key (70mm) from the 50’s Sievert 123 and in comparison the “usual” 50mm long Sievert 123 key.

    Some of you have loads of Sievert 123 owners have loads of these stoves…are there more variations???

    I very much look forward to Doug’s findings in due course.

    heck, i'd like to find a pump for my 123R!

    (looks like they're unobtainable now?)
