Uh, Yoda, wouldn t the width make it a 1203?

You’re right JayT. I saw “like my #4” and that’s what stuck with me.

A #4 has a 2” wide blade.

A lot of defiances were marked with a label that’s been long gone. Some (as shown on my link) were stamped on the tote, but I’ve never seen one with any name cast in the sole.

It’s possible it was sold by another hardware store, and never was marked as a Defiance, but it’s a Stanley made plane from the Defiance line. I summize they didn’t mark them so it was easier to sell as other retailers.
