It is a very good stove. It is an "Oak," type stove which means it has a direct draft as opposed to a base burner or base heater. These were designed for multi fuel use. You can burn wood, Bituminous Coal or Anthracite in them. These stoves were numbered and classified by the size of the fire pot in most cases. The 216 means that it has a 16 inch fire pot, enough to hold around 60 pounds of Nut sized coal. It is a good size for most homes. Some of these stoves were made as, "double heaters," that is they have a dual function. They provide both radiant and convective heat. Andes Stoves are among the best made stoves and they were expensive when they were new.
What are you planning to do with the stove?
If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Well honestly I am trying to get an Idea of value before I make a decission. It is not practical for use in my paticular situation but my home was built in 1868 and it does look great where it sits.

Does the stove have a divided back pipe or is it a direct draft stove? Can't tell from you pix as there are none showing the back. Have you ever used it? What type grates does it have. How about a few more pix of the back side and open the load door and shoot down at the grates.

Why would it not be pratical to use? It looks like it is already installed. It looks very practical to me according to the photos.

Looks to be a direct draft and in decent shape. What are you heating the main house with if this is relegated to the upstairs?

Don't be surprised when you hear this but the Oak Andes will do a lot better job of heating than the other stove. Plus you can burn coal in the Andes. They do a great job with coal. You have a prize and you should be aware of it.

Thank You and I kinda thought it was a nice stove once I started doing some research. I just cant find any information and to be honest with my current situation I may need to put this up for sale. I dont really want to but financially may need to. There are many reasons that I wont go into here but can someone give me an idea of what Im looking at. Man I cant even stand typing that but with this great economy I may not have a choice.

Got to do what you got to do but Williams right, that Andes on ant coal would amaze you comapred to the woodbox stove.
Sales wise it really depends on what someone is willing to pay for it. It's not going to fetch top dollar unless it's restored and the trim is nickel plated again. But for use as is the paint is ok. I've seen them sell for $1500 when totally restored but as is, your looking at $500 maybe. It's a very wide market. Hope your situation changes and you can keep it though. The economy is coming round, it's always cyclical.
