This mixing of parts must be a common thing. On my last flea market day a few weeks ago, I found two #4 size planes together in a small, out of the way store. One had a type 14 or earlier Stanley lever cap and the other had one like pictured above. Both were marked “Stanley hand plane” on the tag but nothing other than the lever caps were marked as I would expect a Stanley to be marked.

Funny thing is, the “Made in USA” marking was exactly like in the picture above. Asking price on each was about $20.
