Was wondering if anyone would know when this stove was made how much it's worth and any other info on it. Only thing I can find is the stove used to have a sheet metal housing with a bunch of air ducts coming off nicked named the octopus furnace.

Don't know any details. However, it's an old coal fired furnace. A lot of the ones I've seen had big cast iron donut shaped tops on them. Also, no bottoms in the ash pit. In my opinion, I wouldn't think they'd be worth much more than scrap. If it has good grates, they might be worth something. Many of the grates were taken out, and replaced with oil guns. Every once in a while, I hear of someone looking for a set of grates.

I belive the grates are good. There is debris in the firebox but when I shake the grates they move nice a free
