The 9 1/2 is pretty popular:
Both Record and Stanley have made a wide range of block planes over the last century, but the most popular are the 9 1/2 and the 60 1/2. The Stanley 9 1/2 has a bedding angle to the iron of 21-degrees. The 60 1/2 on the other hand is the low-angle 12 1/2-degree model. Both models are useful, but I think it’s deceptive to present both as necessary planes.[/quote]

Based on ebay listings, that is ‘about right’ of a price though, so no great deal.
