I've got a modern propane stove that doesn't really count.
I haven't done anything with the 425D, not sure if it will even hold pump pressure, just paid $5 for it at a garage sale. That's a pretty neat one, the legs fold up and locks the top. The 413E has a paper towel roll that flips over when you open the top. My dad gave me the 425E, we used it all the time when I was a kid camping with my family.
The lantern are neat also, they give off lots of light and attract pounds of bugs. The 486A and the 488A where also used on family vacation trips. I got the nickel plated one off a friend. It was pretty rough but I took a buffer to the tank and replaced the globe, now it looks like a hundred bucks.

Years ago I was on a deer hunting trip with a friend and just as legal light was fading he shot a nice buck in thick cover which promptly ran off and managed to hide itself before expiring. With the little natural light we had we couldn't track the blood trail very far so back to camp to retrieve the Coleman lantern. It was amazing that fresh blood actually looked like it floureced in that light. It was an easy task to track down the buck which had managed to fall under thick brush and completely hid itself although I'm sure that was just coincidence since my friend hit it square in the heart.

That is so neat! Do you get nervous leaving fuel in the tanks. I can't ever get all of it out, plus I'm lazy and tired after camping and just leave it in there.
Those tops get screaming hot. I made the mistake of taking off the screw top after running the lamp for a while. That little nut ended up branding my finger tips, of course it was on my right hand so I had to deal with that all weekend.
