What;S a Mark II Worth

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.

Wait until the Fall and he could sell it for 1 miiiiiiiiiiillllion dollars. :lol:

Assuming the grates and everything else is good shape right now I'd suggest about half of what a new one cost but there is really too many variables to give a definitive answer, does it look to be in really good shape?

Personal experience: got 750 for a II 1.5 months ago, sold in 2 days on Craigs, now a wait list for Harmons, bet could get 1K now, 1.2K in Sept, 1.4 K in Nov. Saw a Mark I in good shape on this forum the other day, asking 1.1 K I believe.

All of us Harman dealers just got a notice that we will be on allocation through the end of the year as the factory is overwhelmed. There is also a 7% price increase that will effect stoves shipped after August. Not ordered and had a price quoted but shipped. This should make any good used stoves more valuble.
