    This is a very nice example of the 1084 S. It does not look like it has been used much at all and came with the original box. Unfortunately I think I know why it wasn't used much. There is a stress crack in the tank which might have appeared the first time it was lit. Considering the rarity of this model (this is the third I have heard of) it's not too much of a problem. The crack is hardly visible (can be seen in the middle of the Primus name) and the condition of all the parts is almost perfect.

    Wow! And this is your second then, right?
    These seems to be concentrated to Denmark.

    Are you going to keep this with the crack as it is?
    Just as a display/collectors lantern, so to speak, without trying to fix the leak?

    A beautiful looking lantern Nils, you could remove the tank, hit it with some heat, de solder the base, fill the stress fracture with solder and solder the base back on. I have seen examples of this procedure achieved on this forum.

    At the moment it is. The first one is missing the correct top and is in a well used condition. If all goes well it is off to a new home soon. Both of them have actually come from Sweden, but the third is one I saw in a shop in Denmark that was in for repair. It was in a very miserable state though.

    The edge of the tank is folded over so it is not as easy to get the base plate out of these. This one will be allowed to stay as a shelf queen as I'm not going to risk the condition of it to try a repair. I have enough lamps to use if I need light. :lol:
