    We just purchased a house that has an old Fisher stove. I don't know the model so I'm hoping someone here will recognize it.

    Also, I eventually want to get a newer, more efficient, smaller stove and am thinking about selling this. Any idea what a good price for this would be? It appears to be in good shape...just needs a good cleaning and maybe some paint.

    Flat top doors were painted black, cast iron. They are pre 1980.
    Arched top doors (Cathedral Style) are after 1979. They were available black, nickel plate, brass plate, and later brass and glass.

    Fisher Fireplace Insert ( it's not a "stove" )

    Notice there is no step top or legs (or flue collar) 930 dreamer.

    Value is whatever you and buyer agree upon. Brass or nickel plated or glass door models draw a premium.

    Keep in mind the heat shield for mantel protection, damper, damper rod and brackets have been removed as well as lever or chain to operate damper depending on model year.

    No problem, I just gave him the "scoop".
    Actually, it's not "old" by Fisher standards. It's a later, newer model with all the improvements started in 1980 over the "older" stoves.
