I purchased it for $10, and then called up Presto. Apparently this model was made in 1974, and you can still get parts for it!
Does anyone else use an older canner? If so, are there any quirks I should watch out for? Safety issues?
I don't have an older one, but two things you should do - send the gauge into Presto to be calibrated (they do it for free) and get a new gasket for it. You should calibrate and get a new gasket every few years anyway.
