Is the 403 in good condition, if not is it salvageable?
Are you buying the stove, others on this board may be interested. The cast iron filigree is more delicate than the steel body of a modern stove so for this reason and many others, fewer 403's have survived than Glenwoods for example.

i may never know, that was a portion of my hesitation. coalpuppy is using a 403B under coal fire to keep his 2500 s.f. house livable for approx. 12 hrs.
i would have been trying to use one to keep 1200 s.f. heated and half that is the upstairs that we are fine with not getting any direct heat. ( bohemian love birds ya know ), so it looks like i may have made a bad stumble.
William please PM me what ever facts, figures and expectations you may be aware of concerning the 403B in MO. that is not too far for me.
