I’ve finally decided to sell my vintage/antique/history filled Coleman 523 Gasoline Stove. This model has also been identified as TM8-615. This stove was issued to the United States Army Medical Department in WWII, as it has the Caduceus (Snake wrapped around a staff) symbol front and center on the case. Everything is original and has never been refurbished or refinished. This unit is in original OEM condition, as it was when new. The stove and all parts function as new. The stove, all associated components and case are in an extremely rare, excellent condition. There’s no rust whatsoever, the paint and finishes are as they were when new in the 1940’s. The original blue patina still exists in near new condition on the windscreen shields and around each burner head. The green finish on the tank is in perfect, new condition. Still glossy with zero scratches or imperfections. The tank holds pressure and fuel perfectly. The black finish on the stove top is in near perfect shape, there’s one small, dime sized area where paint is missing bare metal, but no rust, and where any pots/pans would sit is slightly worn, again no rust, just clean bare metal. The plunger used to pressurize the tank is in flawless condition along with the open/close valves and piping from the tank to the burner. It’s all in immaculate shape. All components exist as when new, including the small wrench attached to the inner burner frame. I don’t think it’s ever been removed. The case is in great shape, no oxidation or rust. Small scuffs, but for 74 years old, it’s in great shape! The latches and top carrying handle are functioning as new. Also included it it’s original Spare Parts Kit. Notation on the spare parts kit bag is as follows: SPARE PARTS KIT NO. 9R10285, FOR COLEMAN NO. Included in the spare parts kit are the following parts, quantity and text as noted/indicated on each individual package. [All parts noted below are new old stock (NOS)]. (1)EA – “523-140 FILLER PLUG”. (1)EA – “118B620 VALVE STEM PACKING”. (2)EA – “520-251 CLEANER ROD & NEEDLE X 2″ (Two Total, not 2×2). (2)EA – “523-259 FILLER SCREEN X 2″ (Two Total, not 2×2). (1)EA – “520-950 WRENCH”. (1)EA – “216-500 PUMP LEATHER” (This would be the seal for the plunger, I believe). (2)EA – “104-136 FILLER PLUG GASKET X 2″ (Two Total, not 2×2). (4)EA – “520-299 VAPORIZER” (Four separate and individually packaged). These parts are so rare and sought after, it’s definitely unique and rare to have these, let alone have it with the original stove, in the original parts kit package. This is a great unit for an individual that enjoys US WWII history, camping or outdoor enthusiast, a Coleman junkie, or just somebody who loves gear that has and will stand up to the tests of time. Or this would be great for the antique and vintage enthusiast or anyone who loves camping or hiking outdoors. Like I said before, this thing is rare and in such an excellent shape. It was manufactured in est. 1944/1945, it’s 74 or 75 years old. My hope is that it’s new owner appreciates WW2 history and cares for it as I have and it’s previous owner(s) have. Please message me with any questions you may have, I would be more than happy field and respond to all requests.

WWII USMC Army Mountain Ski Stove M1942 Complete with Carrier, Tool, Spare Parts, Near Mint! The Stove comes with a Wrench and a Spare Part Receptacle, both of which clip ingeniously to the vertical pot supports. The stove weighs 674 grams with the tool, no fuel and no spare parts. The pot supports and tank are of stainless steel. From what I have been able to find, Bestor Robinson was the inventor of the stove. He was a citizen of the United States, a rock climber, and skier. He was also Club Vice President of the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. He helped the U. Army with mountain training, climbing and skiing. Many members of the Sierra Club joined what would be the 10th Mountain Division ski troops. Robinson filed 6 separate patents for this Stove! Designed for the Mountain Troops operating in fuel-scarce terrain above tree line, these were widely sought after, prized, used by ALL branches in all theaters, including Armored personnel as well as troops in the Pacific. This is the more compact, lighter weight M1942 that could nestle inside the separate issue Cook Set. Perfect for the foxhole chef. When you got to have coffee, youve got to have coffee! Folding Legs, Pan/Pot Support Arms work smoothly. Fuel Cap, Pressure Pump function. All Knobs, Bakelite and Wood present. This piece is complete with Adjusting Wrench, Spare Part Housing, and the aluminum 2-piece Carrying/Cooking Can. Stove is marked, U. 1 – 45. Instruction Label is an excellent facsimile reproduction that I added years ago (and can be removed if desired) since it lacked an original water-decal label which were extremely perishable, rarely surviving exposure to heat and spilled fuel for any length of time. The aluminum canister Carrier, adjustable to 2 heights, 7 and 8 1/2, is in near mint shape, showing very careful use. No dents to the sides of the canister whatsoever, but there is a negligible shallow, slight 1/16 convex protrusion in the bottom piece. Carrier is stamped, U.
