it's $1 for a reason, it has what appears to be a giant visible crack running up vertically in the firepot, towards the right side of picture. I have seen that trait on many oak-baseheater-baseburner type stoves if the firepot is bolted fast top and bottom in the design, and not a suspended firepot. if they overfired the stove, the pot expands, and being bolted fast top/bottom, has nowhere to go but crack the firepot itself. like taking an ice cold glass out of the freezer, and running hot water on it.
a suspended firepot, just sitting there in the holder ring, has room to expand and not crack as easily.
that would need a new firepot $75 plus shipping both ways to the foundry, they need the old one as a mold donor, it's a $150-$200 repair minimum.
it cold be relined and filled over it, but who knows how long it would last.
if you took the door from that stove, and maybe put it on the other stove posted previously with no door, and otherwise crossbreed parts, maybe could make one working stove.
that is an entry level, no frills oak stove, of which there were many small companies making them at the time. it would be a good heater once repaired and put into service.
