415C was made from 1940 to 1942. One in good shape would be a pretty nice find. On this forum, we don't provide valuations or appraisals. But if I found a 415C, little used, clean, and in the original box, I would probably pay more for it than for any other suitcase stove I have bought so far. Its value depends on how much you like it and what you want to do with it.

I can't help you with photos-from-phones since I don't present photos via the phone route. But lots of folks here do, so someone should be along before too long to explain how to post pictures from your phone.

I'm no phone expert but downsize your photo. I use post image, the direct link option. Then click the photo button it will put Image in your post. Paste the photo between the brackets.

Not sure if this will make sense.

There's no standardized valuation service for Coleman products so you're going to have a hard time finding a value, but my opinion is you're going to have a hard time getting more than $50 for that stove. There may be folks who would pay more, but you'd likely have to ship it, but these stoves are heavy and cost a fortune to ship , which will cut into its sale price.
It's a fantastic find, though (patiently waiting on pics!). If it's a nice as you suggest, as a fan of these stoves, I may go as high as $40. But that really represents its collectible appeal. If you are looking for a "user" suitcase stove you'd be better off paying $10 for a 425E; in my opinion a much easier to use stove (and weighs half as much).

See 3 pics, double of the stove and a cq lamp. Interesting that I see some green on the tank is it marked solodur(magnetic) or everdur(nonmagnetic)? Had one that was marked solodur but was actually a everdur tank.

Everdur being a copper based alloy and solodur a steel one, both oxidation resistant but the copper one handled "rusting" better.

Does your tank have a tag like this on it?

I believe they were unique to the 415C. If so, the date can be pinpointed.

Mine has it, though I never thought to look for a date stamp (/me heads to the garage)

Carlton, My guess is the Feb 1940 is when the tank was manufactured or inspected date. No clue on the tank instruction tag, as I ain't never seen one. Maybe they printed up a bunch of instruction tags in 1939?

No idea, but it looks the same as the OP's. It has a metal clip that clips onto the valve stem.
