1923 No 3 American Gas Machine Kampkook Campstove

1923 No 3 American Gas Machine Kampkook Campstove

This is a 1923 AGM No3 "Kampkook" stove. It is 8x14x3 inches in size, and very heavy. This is what our grandparents carried in their Ford Model T into the mountains to camp. It is the smallest box stove of the period, and I've never seen a similar sized Coleman box stove. I found this stove in a Brookings, Oregon thrift shop for $25. It is in excellent condition, and I'm sure it will fire up with a little cleaning and maintenance. It has a nickle plated side mounted tank and hand pump. The pump was still in its original cardboard box!
On Dec 28, 2007 I fired this 1923 stove up for the first time with minimal cleaning and prep. Both burners burned hot, and the tank and system is tight and ready for another 80 years of use.

1/5s f/2.4 at 7.2mm full exif

Considering the condition being great, and all accessories included, pump still pumps, what's a possible price on this?

I was just given a Kampkook kstove number 3, needs a little work, the pump leather is rotted out but we will see after it is cleaned up. I have some old Coleman stoves that are antique and this will add to the collection

I just found a scotsman kampkook model lcsd, paint is still shiny with just a couple spots that are not. The decal very good. pump pumps tanks holds i hooked it up and opened the valves and could hear the pressurized air come thru the burners. I would say this stove is very good condition.

Can anyone tell me more about this stove and what it is worth? I seen one on ebay for 139.99 it looked to be in way worse condition than mine but same stove I think. The add said lcs2 model in the post. The stove I have, under the hood is lcsd on the decal.

Please help
Thank you
