IF it was made by Millers Falls, they would have stamped a model number on the left cheek of the plane. From what I can see ( and I have a No.9 to compare this to) maybe the iron was stamped as a Fulton> 107. xxxxx
and on the side would be a “4 DD BB” Under that front knob, there should be what looks like spokes of a wheel, to keep the knob from twisting around.

lateral levers by M-F: Only the left side is folded down. Where your thumb would push on it.

About the only time M-F did not stamp anything into the sides of a plane, was for the Mohawk-Shelburne line, which later became the “V” Value Line of planes. Aka: No.900 for the #9 planes

Half of mine block planes are by Millers Falls, and I have a #8, a #9, a #900, a #11, and a #14. The is a Craftsman #3 c BB as well. Note: Millers Falls used their three point lever caps only on thier own planes, IF the plane was sold to other retailers, a plain-jane keyhole style lever cap was used.
