Price is not unreal. The dollar has lost 97% of its value since 1913.

That's cool but I'm more interested in the different models that were offered.

How many pages are in that magazine?

There is was an amazing variety of stoves available and the options one had for each of the models is mind boggling. You certainly had a lot more choices then than now.

I wonder why?

Hum, could it be that the Federal Reserve and its phony money system replaced real money in 1913? And could it also be that since 1913 there has been a Federal Income Tax?

Before then you could put a dollar in your mattress, forget about it for a few generations, and then upon your distant ancestors re-discovering it, they could buy the same (or a bit more) with it than it could purchase the day you squirreled it away. Yes my friends, before there was a Federal Reserve, very mild deflation was the rule. And post the initiation of Federal Reserve, high rates of inflation have been the rule.

I think they could buy a lot more because more efficient modes of production, as time goes on, enable things to be made less expensively. What has happened of course is that government has abrogated to itself gains in efficiency by ever higher taxes and ever more employees. Enormous resources just blown away while those who produce something make less and less. There is a tipping point as Britain found out in 1776.

Wow, that's pretty cool! Heck even with the inflation calculator that Mark linked, If you paid $60 for that Glenwood #6 Base Heater (with magazine). It works out to about $1400 in today's dollars. Heck I'll take 10 of those any day. That was quite a deal for that model, probably due to the fact that it was very competitive time for stoves with lots of manufacturers.

I too would love to see the other models and prices. See what my "new" Modern Oak 116 was going for?

Nice find on the catalogue VFW.

This page is from the 1923 catalog. Notice just a couple of years after WW I and the prices have doubled since 1916

Wow, outstanding that you had that page with the Base Heater and The Modern Oak's both. Actually, the bodies are the same and as it turns out, my Modern Oak 116 is the same top as the Number 6, with the indirect back pipe versus the Base Heater circuit/bottom. For some reason I thought the 116 was a 14" pot but it shows it as 16" on the page which actually makes more sense considering the numbers. I guess my measuring after putting a new liner in the pot seemed closer to 14". Well that's really cool. Thanks for posting the pix.

William, you're not kidding about the value! My 116 would have $78 with the back pipe and lined pot options. That equates to about $1800 in todays dollars. An outstanding value.

Here's my firepot with the new liner. I'll start my thread of the restoration pretty soon. Got the Pix from start to almost finish. Waiting for my nickel to come back from the platers and I had a set of grates cast off the originals which were mint and will be saved.

Nice job on the liner Steve :!:
And I almost got a 116 before I found the Golden Bride. Good for me cause the 116 would have been too much a big stove for the small livingroom (10 X 16).
Waiting for the restoration thread on it.

Pierre, yes a bit bigger than I thought too till when I saw that catalogue! But for me it will work out well because it will be on the middle chimney center of the house and between the two stairwells. Should be able to heat the house by itself for most of the season and then add the cookstove for the worst of it maybe mid Dec through Feb.
