How do I find out about an old Sears wood stove?

We have a second house in the mountains in an old mining town. One of our neighbors recently purchased a small cabin next to his own to use as a guest house. In it is a small wood cookstove that probably came from Sears. How do we get information on the value of this stove? He wants to remove it and I want to buy it from him, but I want to give him a fair price.

Small cook stove?...As in a kitchen cook stove?

Do you have any info off it at all?
Hard to give you any price without at least some info other than Sears may have sold it...

I get small 'chunk' stoves that are not airtight with flat cooktops for free or nearly so...Kitchen type stoves with an oven, water-heater jacket and bun warmer that are porcelain coated can easily run into the thousands...

You really need to look that thing over...Any breaks, cracks or chipped porcelain really affects end price...

There should be an info plate rivited to just about any kitchen cook-stove...Most cast stoves without porcelain will not have a rivited plate but will have the stove company name cast into the iron somewhere...

It is procelain covered. It has a water reservoir, but without a spigot. I do not think it has a warmer. It is in working order and has been used within the past couple of years. I do not have access to it until this weekend to get any more information on it.
