    This is the Coleman 202 ( called the professional") this model returned to the brass fount ( some having steel bottom and some having brass bottom ) but this is not all, the frame and the collar are made out of stainless steel.
    The Professional was manufactured between 1954 to 1964.

    This particular one was made in 1955.

    @Haggis you found a beauty, a good find and it looks to be in good nick too. It won’t take a lot to clean her up.
    I’m just a little bit jealous :mrgreen:
    I now have the 202 firmly on my radar.
    Cheers
