    A very nice example and it's always good to have the original box.

    Is the filler cap original? It looks like one from an Optimus.

    What do you mean with that? Your first lamp, kicking off a collection, or your most favorite?
    Either way, a beauty of a very early 1020: is there printed matter, spirit can and wrench with it as well?
    Do you know when Primus did dispense with the hook on the bail?
