I've also read that these stoves burn bit better then anthracite and I believe it because everything I've read (novels) which reference the Warm Morning stove have been based in the coal fields of West Virginia which is bit coal. If fact one book states that the "Company" supplied a Warm Morning Stove in every company house and provided free coal. I was surprised to read on the Forum of individuals using the Warm Morning stove to burn anthracite.
I also vaguely remember reading a Forum posting that the Warm Morning Company had gone out of business but parts were still available. You should check the archives. My personal opinion is that unless bit coal is more readily available and vastly cheaper you will be happier with a stove that was designed to burn anthracite – like the Harmon. And unless you live in a rural area so will your neighbors. Lisa
