This is an Oak Style or direct draft stove. This particular model is primarily a wood burner. The large size loading door without any windows and the single spinner type secondary draft in the loading door also marks it as a wood burner. This is a late stove. I would date it somewhere in the late teens or early '20's. Most oak stoves could burn either coal or wood, but; some of them like many models of Round Oaks, were strictly wood burners.
If the stove has a shaker grate with the pull out dump center then it is a dual fuel stove. If it has a flat plate with air slots cut in it instead of a grate, then it is just for wood.
From the picture it looks to be in fairly good shape.

This is another direct draft stove like the first one you posted except that it is much older and much more complex in that it has hot air tubes to make it both a radiant stove and a circulating stove at the same time. This stove here dates from the 1870's. I would venture a guess that it is very, very rare. That would be great if the stove was compete, but; this one is missing some critical parts like its finial and its entire base. This stove is for a collector who will buy it and keep it just because it is unusual.
I have little hopes this one can ever be used again so I would pass it up. It's truly a shame because it looks really neat.
