First, Roger Smith’s Type study was for the#4 Planes, so some features will be different on other sizes.

Next, there was no thought of a type back then. Parts were used until parts were gone. I’m sure things like a plain cap lingered in the bottom of a bin for a while.

And lastly, if a part was lost or broken a trip to the hardware store for one was in order. Vintage of that part wasn’t even an after thought as long as it worked.
