WWII USMC Army Mountain Ski Stove stamped. Complete with Wrench/Tool, Spare Part Housing and Contents, as well as the ORIGINAL Decal with Instructions, ALL Mint!! SUPER CLEAN, never fired up, as best I can tell. It APPEARS to be New Old Stock. There were three contracts for this Stove: one with Prentis-Waber, one with Aladdin, as well as this 1945 contract with COLEMAN APPLIANCE. 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. Bestor Robinson, the inventor of the stove, was an U. Citizen, a rock climber, and a skier. He was also Club Vice President of the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. He advised 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 six separate patents for this Stove! Designed for the Mountain Troops operating in fuel-scarce terrain above tree line (as well as inside a well-ventilated Mountain Tent, with the Canvas Duck Patch on the floor for its use), these were widely sought after, prized, and 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 3-piece Cook Set consisting of two Pots and a Lid/Pan, or a tall cylindrical 2-piece Canister which could also serve as cookware. Both the Cook Set and the Canister Set were manufactured separately by Massillon Aluminum and Rutenberg Electric NOT Prentis-Waber, Aladdin, or Coleman Appliance! Perfect for the foxhole chef. When youve gotta have coffee, youve gotta have coffee! Folding Legs, Pan/Pot Support Arms work perfectly. Fuel Cap, Pressure Pump functions, generating pressure! Both Knobs, Bakelite and Wood, are present and operate smoothly! This piece is complete with the accompany multi-purpose Adjusting Wrench, Spare Part Housing , and its Contents… Which are invariably missing. The stove is marked, U. This Stove has an intact Instruction Label, the Sunflower-yellow water-decal which was extremely perishable, rarely surviving exposure to heat and spilled fuel for any length of time!
