The English Stanleys made post-WW2 are better (heavier castings, usually better fit and finish) than their American equivalents. I would guess that one is from the early 1950’s, and it looks in decent shape. The $100 price is reasonable, but not great. Personally, I would pass and look around for an older Stanley/Bailey from their American-made heyday. You can probably get one for cheaper that with a little work will be a better tool.
