Stanley #5 Jack plane…made sometime after 1962, and before the blue paint was applied…

Make sure the frog will sit without any trouble, and stays put. Then sharpen the iron (25 degrees was usually the one Stanley listed) and make sure the chipbreaker sits on the non-bevel side of the iron, and has no gaps between it and the iron.
