Antique original world war two us army WW2 G.I. ISSUE STOVE

good working condition --

GOOD WORKING CONDITION - IT HAS MOST OF THE ORIGINAL GREEN PAINT & LABEL ON THE LOWER GAS CONTAINER ,.. THE BURNER AREA IS GOOD, BUT SHOWS SOME USE ,....AND LIGHT SIGNS OF PAST CORROSION -IT COULD USE A GOOD CLEANING !

world war two usgi 3rd pattern -scarce Coleman Model 520 / G - I Pocket Stove,

stored in its container , it looks like a metal cylinder,....9 inches high and 4 1/4 inches in diameter, and weighing about three pounds. when Taken apart ,.. the cylinder's cap doubles as a cooking pot.

during World War II, the Coleman Company ,made GI cook stoves ,

these were a little diffrent than the slightly smaller m1941-42 stove in service ,............. - It was larger & stronger than the smaller m1941/42 stove ,....it could burn any type of fuel, and operate in almost any kind of weather. And it needed to be small because it would be used by ski-troops and paratroopers, soldiers who would sometimes be behind enemy lines.

it would burn for about two hours on a cup of fuel taken from a jeep or an airplane. The stove swiftly boiled water for purification, and a single unit could heat drinks or field rations for two men. they were used in every battlefield in both the European and Pacific theaters

I remember these were first made famous, when they made their MOVIE debut ,..in the audie Murphy story ,...when a g.i. was shot by a German ,.. as he struggled to free his trusty G.I. cook stove from an entanglement of barbed wire ....
