Yep, I agree with Don, you have a V&B 905 with incorrect iron and lever cap. If you clean off the toe, it will have “Drop Forged” in front of the knob. The 900 series have drop forged steel bodies instead of cast iron. The gray japanning on the body is also characteristic of those models. I’ve never seen that color on any other planes. It’s weird to me that they did the gray body with a black japanned frog, but that’s the way they were.
