    Nice. Is that the box to look for then? You sparked my interest at the CASG.

    Yes, appears to be one of the boxes. Doug (@exeter_yak) wrote quite a thread about the history of the Sievert Svea 123. This is the first of these boxes I have. "Red Flannel", I have a few, are later (I believe).
    Doc and I both had 1st version Svea 123s at the meet.

    @Doc Mark Note, the chain was attached to the neck, not to the windscreen, on this one.

    @snwcmpr ,

    Ken,

    Can you post a photo of where the chain attaches to the burner, please? As far as I know, my V1 Sievert SVEA 123 is as it was bought, brand new, by the wonderful folks from whom I bought it. But, I'd love to see where this one is attached, if possible. I'm thinking that this one is the V2, or V3, but can't see the fuel cap to be sure. What's your take on it? OUTSTANDING score, in any case!! Thanks for sharing your new baby!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    Morning, Ken,

    Excellent! Now I see what you meant about the chain attachment. Looks good to me, and makes sense, too. Now that I can see the fuel cap, and using Doug's excellent information as an example, I am guessing this wonderful Sievert 123 is a V3 stove, and a wonderful stove it is, too!! I am very happy for your having scored this one, my friend, and thank you for sharing it here!! I was looking at DutchMike's V1 this morning, and it made me smile that both you, and I, had V1 Sieverts at the CASG recently! Probably one of the few times that a couple of V1 123's were used in such a close proximity to one another!! Fun!! Thanks, very much, for the additional photos, as they helped to ID the version of your wonderful and lovely stove, and to add more info as to where the regulating key chain should be affixed! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    The cap looks like a Type 3 per LINK

    Per above link information this stove dates after 1958.

    Further into the above link ... POST
    A photo of the instruction number.
    Is this (19)61?

    And a serial number on a tag that (a safe assumption) it is still unfired or the tag would have been burned (if not removed and replaced).

    I am SO GLAD I have other Sievert Svea 123s to use. I can then safely store this on a shelf.

    Hey, Ken,

    Looks right to me! I think you've pegged your date pretty close, and love the additional photos you've posted about your absolutely, mouth-wateringly beautiful stove!!! =P~ :thumbup: :clap: I'm also glad that you have no plans to fire this stove, as it richly deserves to be given respect and love, just as it is, and you are going to treat it with proper observance of same!! WELL done, Mate!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Very nice Ken. I'm happy I sent you the link for that, and I'm glad you were able to purchase it. Looks a lot better in your pics than it did in the listing. Can't wait to see it in person!

    Thanks for the link Jon.
    Yes, I agree, nice find, but anyone can find treasures like this with friends like you and a dose of patience.
    I can recall emails from Alexander sharing information about these fine stoves. How to know the Sievert from the Optimus. I came into this 'malady' ignorant. Now at least I know a little. Still have the 'malady' though. :)

    Thanks @Tony Press

    I am insanely jealous of your very good looking unfired Sievert 123 stove. What a wonderful example of manufacturing craftmanship.

    Very nice pick up! Thanks for the great photos. Does it have some kind of varnish over the brass to prevent oxidation?

    @snwcmpr, Ken, funny my newest 123 I picked up has the same number on the fuel cap, but a round hole for the SRVEE. (Only way tablet will use the initials.)

    I would like to see that cap from a few different angles. Is there a pin visible?
