I think it is a good buy at the price asked. Put Godin in the search in this forum and you will find a lot of information.

Godin stoves are very pretty and well made. The problem areas are a small ash pan and the tendency of the coal ash to form a bridge making clearing the ash difficult and sometimes forcing you to shovel the ash from the bottom of the burning mass of coal. Dangerous and messy. They were made in two sizes in the round pattern and this one looks to be the large size. Be sure to check the condition of the fire brick.

The smoke pipe is small and the stove should not be installed in too large a chimney as draft will suffer.

Works well as a wood burner also.

I sold a similar model last winter for $450. But my unit was the larger of the two round models and almost never used. Also had the external ash tray. Check it out carefully.

good little stove for a small area but somewhat of a pain to operate.
if it has all the parts and the firebrick is in good shape $250 is a good price.
