    This is a very early Travelling No.0. Notable early features are the access to the pumps one-way valve on the outside of the tank, collared pan supports, bun feet & glass bottle for the priming alcohol.

    Good Evening, @Spiritburner, @Neil B, and All,

    Today, I received an early Optimus 00 just like your's! Box is in need of help, and it's missing the tank cap, spirit bottle, wrench and cleaning pins. But, I'm very happy to have found it, and took lots of photos just now, which I will post either later tonight, or tomorrow! I'll look again, but so far, I can't recall seeing another "Patent" early version, like yours, except Neil's, and now, mine. Thanks for posting your early stove here, Ross! It was a great help in learning, exactly, what I bought! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    P.S. Here is Neil's very early stove:
