It does look like a #5 (about 14 inches long). This is a plane that could be very useful for removing cup and twist from a rough cut board prior to puting it through the planer. I would go ahead and flatten the sole, and sharpen the iron. The chip breaker may also need a little stoning. I definitely would fix it up and let it “sing” again.
