Thankyou very much Don for helping !!!

Uhmmmmmm …
Before I keep asking about taps and dies I see in your picture something I really need to understand :
I’ve never seen/noticed a stanley plane tote coming with that style bolt !!!
I’ve a 62 from the SW era, the blade has got the 2nd SW logo (1922-1935),
my plane (as you can see from the 1st picture) hasn’t got the headed bolt, but the more common brass/steel combo used on the bench planes ….
Is your 62 older than mine ? Is it more recent ? or is just that I’ve the wrong combo ?
This information is very important to me because I like restoring tools to their original conditions,
( I’m a bit collector a bit user ) and I could not sleep at night if I had a fake on my 62 …
Please guys let me know, I’m Italian and do not have chance to go to antique shops/markets to make research on the field, I fully rely on your knowledge !!!
