I found this blog online months ago, and did actually place bids on the stove. IIRC I quit bidding at around $350 and let the other bidder take it. I didn't want to travel the 250 mile round trip, 4 hours, in hellish traffic, to go get it, in downtown Philadelphia.
but it was and is, one cool stove, and if I ever see one again, I'll try to buy it.
take the time to read the entire blog, great historical infohttp://stovehistory.blogspot.com/2014/0 ... 0013778445
