    Hi All,
    recently I've bought myself an old "primus 0". I think relatively good conditions, however, I have a problem to date this stove. I went through galery of "zeros" and I couldn't find any example of similar markings. Could you please help me to figure out, what could be the production year?

    lol...
    it is "fake PRIMUS"
    IMO:
    - made in Warsaw
    - early - mean pre or just at the time of. Great War..
    - connected with "SYSTEM PRIMUS" and "PHENIX" and "PRIAMUS" and "fake OPTIMUS"

    Only now I see "OKP.POL."... indeed this is very interesting. They have put a lot of effort to make it look like original, and at the same time they put a "copy" stamp. It looks like a joke "POL" next to "STOCKHOLM". Was there any production licensing?

    explanation in polish
    --------------------------

    to jest zwykła polska podróba - "fake" znaczy "fałszywka"
    warszawski zakład produkował różne wersje...
    nie dopatruj się żadnych licencji w sygnaturze z dna zbiornika

    kolejny raz (trzeci przypadek) twórca stempla nie wiedział co pisze i popełnił błąd - można przypuszczać, że nie znał liter(sic!) i odzwierciedlił podobne znaczki/kształty...
