Hi. Thank you. I looked over this but am still having trouble. Don’t know if it’s a Grandma or Grandpa. Measurements fall in between what are posted. Not sure what version either.

Grandma Bear.
Notice how close the trees are at the door seam. Grandpa has a much larger space between trees.
The wider measurement s what I call a wide body some fabricators made. It has a wider front plate at the sides of the doors than a normal width Grandma. Also notice the door hinge plates are very straight. They should have an angle cut on the back and be angled outward as shown below;

Here's a wide one built like yours;

Same doors and same size door opening.

Here's the difference showing the space between trees in the center of Grandpa doors;

Values and prices are all over the place. I'm in northern NY State, and I've never paid more than $300 for a Fisher stove. The refurbished Fisher stoves are worth more because I usually have $650+ in paint, new firebricks and other supplies needed to refurbish a stove.
