I found this on Craigslist for $275.00.  Since it was a rather minimal investment, I figured I would take a gamble and buy it.  However, I can’t find out much information about them.  Not sure if it’s true or not, but when researching, I found that only a couple of these are known to exist.  Other than a couple bullet holes, it’s in excellent condition.  It’s all cast iron with a wood-grain porcelain finish (and very heavy).  If anyone has any information or an approximate value, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Don

Buy the expensive one. Buy the bullet hole one.  Then you’ll have a corner on the market–every one in the known world!

That bullet hole stove would do well for heating my place in the woods.

Thank you, especially for the newspaper ad.  $70.00 back in 1928 is nearly $1,000.00 today.  A pretty spendy piece going into the Great Depression.  I’m guessing most of these were scrapped during WWII and beyond.  I did try contacting the seller of the $15,000.00 one to see if they actually sold it and for what amount, but got no response.  I’ve been trying to dig up information about them, but haven’t been too successful.  I see the Gole’s are big Winchester memorabilia collectors and I may try contacting them about it.  Anyway, if there really are just 2 known to exist, I think the $275.00 buy was pretty good.

Ok, so first of all the winchester rarity book post this in there for I think $2000.  Sadly I have seen it for sale for $450 a LOT and know takers.  Although it is cool and an item from the winchester store age its not that valuable.   Mainly because its SO SO SO HEAVY.   The reality is a lot of the big bulky store advertising items are not worth what you might think.  That guy that wanted $15,000 did not sell it.   I know the last one I saw sell for $450 and that was high.   Sorry to burst the bubble but I’ve been collecting winchester store items for over 15 years and have many rare pieces but to be honestly I would not want the stove for the very reasons I have listed, way to heavy.
