I haven't been on this site for years, my Alaska Kodiak has been single-matched running problem free for the past 14 years. Burning only Blaschak pea coal direct from the breaker via Manbeck Trucking in Girardville.

That being said, my neighbor who passed away last year has 2 amazing Francos that have to go as the kids are selling the house. The daughter contacted me, I can get pictures and info/models on Friday. I've seen them both today, they are both like new IMO. The vases seem to be like new. I will further inspect on Friday.

I do know that one is the typical 80's Franco that has not been burned in about 15 years due to his illness. He was a fanatic about maintenance and kept it in perfect condition having been a machinist. The 2nd is a bit bigger and has been unburned for probably 30 years, it is just setting covered up. Both are in Coppertone enamel.

If there's any interest, please reply.
