I think I bought it about 35+ years ago (give or take) at a garage sale or swap meet when I was in So. Cal. It says No. 5, on the front. and I burnished the lateral lever with scotch pads and it says Stanley on it with a patent date of 1876..and also a couple of tiny patent numbers by the stanley name. The blade is so worn that the center
part of the bevel has reached the hole for the retaining screw. I need a new iron for it, that’s for sure. I don’t use planes often, but there are situations where nothing else works like an old hand plane. I will try to figure out how to put a couple of photo’s on here.
