    Bocefus, thanks. The lady that has the stove for sale ended up with my high school class ring which I think was left in Duluth Minnesota about 35 years ago, we picked the ring up last night which was in a town only 10 miles from the town we live in.

    When I get more time I'll tell you more.==c

    Thanks

    I can't really help with pricing, but another method to get an "average" is to watch fleebay. Watch until you see a few similar stoves and you will start to get a feel for price range.

    She should do a little research to determine the age and history of her stove. What it is worth will depend on style, condition, timing and the market. If the stove needs replating that will decrease value somewhat.

    Here is a good place for her to start reading:
    http://museum.swmich.edu/museum/round-oak/guide

    And here is a fancier version of the Indian model that has been restored.

    As is, I would guestimate in the $500 range if there are no cracks or defects.

    I'm thinking the $4-500 range is a good baseline. We've been looking for an older parlour stove to use as an outdoor "firepit" of sorts for quite a while (need to find the right one at the right price). Don't let the super high prices RESTORED stoves can command give her any ideas! A nice original stove in that shape is a lot different than one that's been repainted, replated and completely gone through for tiny cracks, etc. Old fridges and cook stoves are quite similar in that manner.
