Probably a type 11-12. Kinda sought after in the user market. I typically get a little more for that type era. It will make a great user and isn’t collectable due to the condition so if it were me I’d give it the full spa treatment, that’s what I do on the higher end users I sell. Don’t use sandpaper on the knurl nut get some distilled vinegar after you degrease it and let it sit for an hour ish to soak then take a soft bristle brush to it like a stiff older toothbrush that’ll get it cleaned up nicely. I might be wrong but the iron is most likely from an earlier plane but thats fine as long as there is plenty of life left in it. That specific era of iron is as good as the one that should have been on it. All in all if you didn’t pay much for it you’ll definitely get some great use out of it thus making it a bargain in the end. If you need any tips or tricks on cleaning it or getting it ready for use PM me I’ll help in any way I can.
