Market for Used Stove?

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

I have a friend with this stove, looking
to sell. I'm sorry I don't have better
pictures, but it's all they could send me.

Is there a market for these stoves? if so,
does anybody have an idea of value?

currently running a Channing III in our basement,
feeding into cold air return and circulated with
forced air furnace.
love the even warm heat!

I have that exact same stove in my shed. It was in our hunting cabin for years and before that it was in my grandfathers house. Those jokers throw an incredible amount of heat. we used to have to open the windows sometimes because my dad would have the house 90+dergrees !!!

Those Warm Morning stoves also do a good job burning bituminous coal. US Patent Number 2,255,527 describes the firebox design of these stoves. It was modified a bit in later years, but the same principle applies. Since Lock Stove Works was in St. Louis, MO, they had to be able to burn that 'high quality' bituminous mined down in So. Illinois.

I personally like the cabinet versions with that classic two-tone brown cabinet. Very retro.
