    I mean we geek out over axes, knives, and shovels. So why not.

    Here's my Canadian Coleman 414. Dual burner, 17,000 BTU rated on white gas.

    Dual Fuel model so can also run unleaded.

    Got it straight from Canada via Ebay, shipping was near equal to purchase price, still under a hundo though.

    I've not tried real hard to date it yet. Was listed as Vintage though. After a 24 hour soak in denatured alcohol, and learning the nuance of lighting she burns real good. Nice clean even flames.

    Don't know If you model is so marked but if you look at the mounting tab on the fuel tank most show the manufacturing date on the bottom side of the tab.

    Looks like a great find. I've had an old Coleman for several decades and it never fails to work perfectly. I've found that using Coleman fuel or a third party equivalent you can preclude the problems caused by unleaded. Little more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

    @meanstreak all your fault mia koppa but i am manic/passionate about such things. Lol
    My fav stove last few years is this little titanium BRS its light as a quarter seriously a quarter will boil water in 120 seconds depending temp and elevation. Super small and a real bargain buy 2 on amazon !!!! Im an avid hiker and usually solo weight is important but i do like certain comforts or i aint goin hot coffee and grub on occasion is required. An 8oz iso fuel can lasts me alone 7 to 10 day depending. For many years i was a MSR whisperlight international still great stove but akward compared and bulkier. The brs is super fast deployment and your cookin it is very adjustble for low simmer a nice feature. Anyhow heres some pics.
    Ps edit were i headed somewhere i wasnt sure about iso avail id be packing the msr international again no question

    Here is the old MSR whisperlite international uses multi-fuel, wide range of stuff. This one is from early 90s truly been international, its retired now for most part, but its a good one.
    Just fired it up on porch with some kerosene. 1222181241(1).jpg the difference in size and weight is amazing to my new teeny stove, BUT the old MSR is surely more versatile, just bigger heavier, stood test of time and use, still in production today and highly respected.

    I have a whisterlite that I bought in the early 90s and like yours it's been a great stove. Don't hike much anymore due to age but it resides in my emergency kit that stays in the Jeep year round. I've had no problems with it other than recently replacing the plastic fuel pickup hoses inside the fuel bottle. I bought a spares kit with it back in the early 90s and have never needed to replace anything. Great stove.

    I was telling the wife last night about the Coleman 520, and 530. Antiquated no doubt, but would like to have one, on just cause. I suppose I could settle for a modern Coleman 533. I may just keep an eye out for one of the MSR whisperlite though. No sense passing up a good deal if I find it.

    Some of us "antiques" are, from my biased point of view, only getting better with age!

    These old Coleman stoves and lanterns will still be going strong when we're all gone. Have an old two burner stove like shown above and two lanterns. Just keep a stock of extra mantels on hand and you're good to go. Burning clean fuel is the key to long life.

    Regards
