    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've seen well used Radius 43's go for more. A unused 43 shelf queen would be incredible, so congrats to the new owner is all I can say. Wish it were me.

    Nice stove, I'm sure it's rare. But I always wondered why they go for so much.

    The "new old ones" are mostly bought by people who have to much money to spend, and no time to use their stoves :roll: [-( . All their time is taken up with making money, so instead of buying a "user" stove they buy "dreamer" stoves. I bet they're all green with envy :mrgreen: for us stoveusers! :lol: :D/

    Best regards,

    Wim (who DOES have 3 sparkling brand new unused old stoves!!! :lol: ;) But I have identical twins that see some use :D/ )

    beautiful stove indeed. I like the way the spirit cup windscreen has a little spout to let you put the spirits in the cup with the windscreen on. Pretty nice feature as its a dread to always take the windscreen on and off all the time to prime the stove. I wonder why other windscreens are not designed like this.

    OLD POST ALERT:

    BUT, is this "1940s" or older than 1939?

    I can't see any "Radius Ltd" in the photos.

    Cheers
