Am I correct the 2 digit numbers on bottom are year? Lantern states 80 and small burner 79.
The oven never out of Box. We went pretty fast into a RV from Tents! LOL! I have a couple old stoves, but they are in the Motorhome and my Hunting Truck. I need more Lanterns.

The year is the 2 digit stamp, a lot of them will have a single digit that is the month. My understanding is the month is an approximation

To make the oven more efficient get a clay/ ceramic tile to put in the bottom. Get a welding blanket and cut to fit the outside top and 3 sides where it will lay on top and fold over the sides or wrap with foil. Get a oven thermometer and compare it to the one in the door.

Depending on the year of manufacture, date can be left to right or right to left. Older ones will be stamped on the side and there is one model that doesn't have a date at all just a US on the bottom.
