Coal Bob,

I see your from Delaware Ohio, I was born and raised there. Do you have bit coal or will you use anthracite ? Is the stove your looking at able to burn bit if that is what you will have access to ?

A perfect Florence Hot Blast sells in the thousands of dollars if it is one of the more fancy and rare models. No 77's are very common. Florences are among the best stoves made in my opinion. They are designed to burn Bituminous, but; will burn Anthracite very well also. The special thing about Florences is the pre-heated secondary air that is added over the top of the fire. This provides a much improved environment to burn the hydrocarbons found in Bituminous.

That was very expensive back then. 50 dollars was more than most people made in a months time.

Agreed, $600 is an excellent price. Just make sure that the stove is servicable (no cracks), the doors and dampers are tight, grates work etc...In the picture, it looks quite nice. If it's all there and in good shape it's probably worth twice that.
