It looks like its all there. $75-85 would appear to be a reasonable price. You can print the photo of the one for sale on Ebay and use that as a "show me the car fax" type of incentive to sell it for that range.

agree with fred here... On these type stoves, appliances, products from the 40's or 50's (this appears to be a 50's product) ITS ALL ABOUT THE DECOR/PORCELIN, the stove really has no value as a stove because their are so many other that can function better for whatever your functional purpose is (be it heat or cooking, etc.) But their are folks who simply love enamel (here is supreme example of a stove made by the millions by many companies but THIS one is appealing to me for its décor/style/enamel http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Frenc ... 2c7219a00b

If you look the look/style/décor of it... the seller should feel lucky and sell it to you for $100.00 (thats more than fair) otherwise he will need to take it to the scrape yard at some point.

Here is a very similar stove that has never been used! More money; but you get what you pay for.

My parents had one when I was a kid. They referred to it as an End Heater. It sat nicely beside an apartment size gas range.
