Pictured below is Cody-McCullough and Magda-Bromberg living history re-enactors from Manteno, Illinois. They met up with Gina Costin of Essex, United Kingdom in Europe. She generously donated a chrome plated Coleman model 520 to the Ernie Pyle Museum in Dana, Indiana. Cody and Magda hand delivered it to the Ernie Pyle Museum as Gina Costin had requested.
It is an exact replica of the Coleman stove that was presented to Ernie Pyle, by the Coleman company back in September of 1944.
It is proudly displayed in our museum, the Friends of Ernie Pyle Museum and Board members personally want to thank them!
Below is a picture of the article written by Ernie Pyle, Sept 4, 1944 where he talks about his Coleman 520 stove.
