Had to pass on it. WAAAY too much stove for me. That thing would eat a whole tree in a matter of hours. Turns out they came from Nebraska where they were used to heat poultry houses. So the "cool factor" was negated by the "OMG this thing is enormous" factor.

The turkeys called fowl on them. ;)

I was eyeing the rungs on the ladder hung on the wall behind the stove, and wondering how perspective was going to work on that. It looks like it could be 30" diameter, or larger.

I'd say about 4' in diameter and a little over 5' high. Much bigger than it seems in the picture.

My Uncle was the manufacturer of Lincoln stoves. That model was called the "Papa Potbelly" it was designed to be used in large shops/garages. There was one in a local mechanics shop in the town I grew up in that would keep that entire building uncomfortably warm in even the coldest weather.
There was also a "Momma Mushroom" model that was a pedestal base mushroom shaped unit. Visualize half of the round unit pictured above. They were great for homes, My parents and grandparents still have them in their homes today.
There was a thirds "fireplace insert" model as well. We had one in our place as far back as I can remember.

All three models worked extremely well!

if the OP is still around, what part of the country was that Craigslist ad posted?

Here's mine, works REALLY well. It's in my basement and I have it connected to my '22 Royal and it's awesome... very powerful stove. To my knowledge it was a prototype that never never took off, can anyone confirm?

Note that only one appliance is to be connected to the chimney. Also the clearance to combustibles for this stove are 36" all directions.

Here's mine.. picked it up in South Dakota this winter for a mere $400! Previous buyer sanded it down to metal and then decided it was too big for his house.. I got a bit carried away painting it up a bit much and now its my shop stove. Keeping this unicorn forever haha. and yes, Lincolns face is painted in high temp copper;)
