It is a Franklin style stove probably late 70s to early 80s. Worth at most $150 but probably less. Also a very dangerous install as many of those were

I buy and sell used wood stoves for a hobby and I see stoves similar to this on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist. Some people have a hard time selling them. I have seen them priced for $125.00 to $50.00 and some even give them away. But hard to say what will happen in your area. I would start at $150.00 with BO. When it comes to used wood stoves these types stove rank low on the list. Not trying to be negative but sharing what I have observed watching the market on used wood stove.

I restore in northern VT, and deal with your area alot as well. These old franklin stoves are basically worth scrap. Sometimes you might get lucky and someone will give you $100 for it if they are in a rush and impulse buy, but these are literally given away more than actually bought online.
I charge milage +50 to pick them up and scrap them for people. Normally a better option to just find a local scrapper that will take it for free.

If you know any artists in your area that deal with cast iron they would be happy to take it off your hands.

I paid someone $20, I think, to scrap a fireplace insert a few years ago. Think I have a few number to call in my phone. I can post them, if you need to go that route.
