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.

It looks a lot like a Warm Morning 120. My father bought two Warm Morning 120's surplus after WWII. They are good stoves but his rusted out around the base. They have cast iron and sheet metal parts and the sheet metal has a limited life span. The fire brick in the Warm Morning were custom made for that stove. If the brick are bad it is a big expense to get them replaced. I wouldn't bid myself unless I could inspect it in person. If it were a bargain maybe, but I think there are better stoves out there. I have two model 617-A Warm Mornings myself. I paid $40 for one and $35 for the other. They are heating my house for now but in time I'm going to upgrade. Stay Warm, Jonathan
"When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence. Half a truth is often a great lie. He that lives upon hope will die fasting. Rather go to bed with out dinner than to rise in debt. The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself." Benjamin Franklin
