The set in the photos is the set you will win in this "Buy It Now" sale.
This set has flat finish gray paint, ithas marks from storage and looks repainted by Swedish Army with a brush and then put in storage. The two stainless steel pots fit together.The bottom pothas a thick,painted,steel wire handle with two indentions and another hook-shaped wire attached to same for hanging the pot - the wire is not stainlesssteelso there is some slight rust.The second indention in the handle is used to lock the handle at an angle so it won't get too hot when cooking and can be used to lift the pots without putting your hands over the fire. The top pot is stainless steel with a steel folding handle andtwofolding rings - folding handle is not stainless so has a very small amount ofrust. Thefolding handlehas two rings through which you can add a rod (a wood stick) to extend it's reach (over a fire).
The blackanodized aluminumwind screen is used and has no dents and a lot less scratches than normal. The pots store inside the windshield for transport. The windscreen has two stainless steel wire folding "legs" inside that fold up in order to create a stand upon which to rest the bottom pot or the top potwith handle extended,and to make a space to put the burner underneath -
The spirit burner in this sale is a brand new, NEW PRODUCTION,commercial (not military) Trangia burner. It is brass, new, no dings (even though brass is relatively soft). It is stamped on the bottom with a largeembossed "T" for Trangia, the lid is stamped with warning notes in English and French, the underside of the lid has a Buna rubber O ring to seal any remaining fuel in the burner for transport (so you don't have to empty any fuel you didn't burn) - note the O ring will melt from heat - if it is too hot to pick up thenit is too hot to add fuel to or seal with the lid! If you want a military version of the Trangia Burner without the simmer lid let me know, I have some used but well working versions and some that look unused, like new inside but with discolored brass outside.
This commercial burner model also includes a special extra lid which fits snuggly over the burner lid for transport - it has a sliding/pivoting brown-painted disk "simmer ring" - using proper hand and finger protection, the sliding lid can be opened and closed to adjust the burner heat - when closed it can be put over the burner to extinguish the flame - again very elegant and simple engineering. The brown sliding lid is stamped "ACHTUNG HEIB" which means "Attention - Hot!".
The spirits bottle is white opaque plastic with a black screw-on top, it is embossed with the 3 Swedish crowns and "RöDSPRIT MYCKET BRANDFARLIG GIFTIG" in Swedish which means- "Rödsprit = wood alcohol with red colour added to make it undrinkable (methylated spirit); Mycket brandfarlig = very flammable; Giftig = Toxic" (thank you Henrik Linsten for the translation!).Also included is a new Vargo Outdoors spirits bottle.
Also included is a brand new genuine Swedish Army "kuksa" or drinking cup, made especially for the Swedish Army for use with this set as it fits perectly inside. It is OD green shiney plastic, handle is embossed with the three Swedish crowns and and OPV AB. It has measurement graduations inside.
Also included is a brand new genuine Swedish Army ration can opener, official designation M7481-021000 Konservbrytare Mini, which was distributed with the infamous "Golden Cans" (Swedish army field rations are packaged in metallic tins with a golden hue).
Also included is one NEW extra spirit burner Buna rubber O ring gasket included for FREE (each kit therefore has 2 new gaskets)!
