    We had just come into possession of the Franklin Scandia stove. We are looking for the approximate value of this stove, if anyone has any information on it. Thank you, Linjanisb

    Unless the stove is like new, scrap value is about it. The market is cooling off now. It will be better in fall if you can hold on to it. It wouldn't hurt to try your local Craigslist and see if you can get $50.

    Show us a photo of it. Can get a couple hundred bucks for a decent cast iron stove.

    Franks, these are poor quality copies of certain models from way back. No parts, company sued out of business due to copying, etc. etc.

    No actual real value....just what you can get someone to haul it away for or us for a cabin in the mountains for a hermit.

    I'm with you, Franks. Real Jotul 118s are going for up to $800, a copy should be worth two bills... if it's all there and has usable baffle plates in it.

    $50? I'll drive out there tonight to get it for that price.


    EDIT: Uh.... I thought the location was central MA, now I see it's central MS.

    Never mind. :red:

    You see, surrounded by Hermits, I have a falsely inflated view of junk stove pricing.

    Locally, with oil doing what its doing, to a seasoned vet, that might be a boat anchor. To the guy who is paying 3K a year in oil and is scared of the $700 Lowes/Home Despot stove price tag, that stove would go for $200 clams in a heartbeat. So I suppose there are two questions and answers.

    1. What do the folks on Hearth.com think its worth? Scrap metal
    2. How much can I sell the stove for in Franks backyard? $200 easy.

    Does anyone remember what this stove sold for new? I kind of doubt is was more than $200, but am not sure. As for its current value, it's just conjecture without some pictures so that we can make a rough assessment of its condition. If it is like new, then you might get someone to part with a hundred or so for the stove. If it has seen a few decades of use, I wouldn't feel very good asking more than $50 if that.

    Yup, that was my first suggestion was to see a photo. If you notice, the OP hasnt even been back here to follow up, so now its just a bunch of H.com people discussing it. Close the thread!
