    I think it may be a pre-war 830

    Or maybe a 523 Petromax.

    not an 830. A Petromax 830 is very rare and has a special design, see: Petromax 830 300HK -June 1938-

    It is hard to tell without detailed images.
    It looks rather old so 826 would be my guess. But you would have to check the nozzle if it states the HK/CP rating.
    Does the hood hold the inner casing or do they sepatarte?

    Hello @Gerrie Cardinaal, welcome to this forum.
    Maybe introduce yourself first ?

    I would clean it and doing so it will reveal markings.
