    Hi, thought you might like to see a picture of my Coleman Solus 518. I believe it dates to around 1942 and has never been used.

    Hi weg69 very nice stove indeed and quite a rare example in that patern and unfired, you could be spot on with the date looking at the pic is the tank been painted or is it a unpolished brass,most british and european stoves made in that period had steel tanks as there was a shortage in brass but i am not sure if they did the same in america and canada at that time
