This Copper Clad Stove in model PB81 was made in the 1920's. Very good condition indicates that the stove is not in need of a restoration. In this condition, the stove has a value of $1500 to $1800 retail. I am giving you a range of price to allow for any issues that it might have that you don't realize. I do hope this price will make your wife happy! Everyone wants these right now, so you could advertise on Craigslist and probably sell it rather quickly if selling was part of the plan.

This model and the PB88 were the most produced models by this company. It is possible that the stoves you are looking at are new restorations or different companies/models or even people that are simply putting high prices on their stoves. I think those prices are even high for a new restored model, though. The highest I have found for one that was completely restored (meaning repainted and all new parts) was $2,000.
I do hope you decide to keep your stove and enjoy it for many years. I am always for keeping antiques and using them because NEW things don't last anymore!
