I also have a old wood burning cook stove that says, Sears and Roebuck on it. It's in the junk pile!!!

US ARMY, it might burn coal instead of wood.

Without seeing the US ARMY stove I can not tell you much. If it was designed for coal primarily, there is usually a grate to allow air to circulate underneath.
Most cast Iron stoves can burn either just fine.

However...please do me a favour and get that Sears & Roebuck out of the junk pile.
If the casting is not too badly cracked or broken will you please send it to me parcel post?
I will take it off your hands and give it a good home. You will be saving me about $1000 and I will have a nice antique that I can use...

Seriously though...I bet that sucker is worth something to someone. Even with cracks I have seen them go way over $1000. Yuppies just love to have them converted to gas...

Salmoneye, there is/was a store in Golden Colo that restores old stoves and sells them to the yuppies. I was in the store in 1981 and they had one stove they were asking twenty thousand for then. Couldn't imagine what it would be now.

Crazy, aint it!

I know where there is a porcelain enameled cook stove holding up what is left of an old deer camp.
I found the owner of the land, and he told me I could have it if I tear down the place and burn the rubble.
Problem is, it is about a mile in on a logging trail nearly 75 miles from me. I would need a 4WD tractor at the very least to get in and out with that sucker. I am sure she weighs a ton (literally!)...
