I have a Veritas round bottom and a Ln/Boggs flat bottom. They both work great. The first was a gift, the second I got used off this forum.

Old tools if they are in good condition work great. I have a few old hand planes that are awesome. It can take a bit to understand how to tell when scratches are too deep and when rusty is too rusty, but still you can pick decent ones.

I would say whatever you get, look for one that has a blade depth adjustment. The Veritas has one, the LN does not. It is a little fiddly to set the LN, but not impossible. If it is your first one and it has a depth adjuster it will take that variable out of the equation.
