Older #6 planes are pretty common, I’ve found. I have a Type 6 that I got on eBay for something like $25 shipped.

Try searching completed listings on eBay. Type 5 isn’t old enough where serious collectors are going to go nuts for it, I don’t think.

It’s always what the market will bare rule. You paid 15.00, that is a good price for sure. New #6 is way more than that, but for a woodworker a nice plane at a very reasonable price is always welcomed. I have paid anywhere from 15.00 to 55.00, depending on the shape and usually pick an older plane over a new. Though that rule has been broken now and again, have purchased a couple Veritas and L. Nielson, and find them to be beautifully made and ready for work. Have fun, make some dust.

Sounds like a good deal on a sweet plane.
Hope you have loads of fun making little curls with it, (and maybe something useful).

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.

Good used Stanley plane are fairly easy to find at a good price in the wild in certain parts of the world.

In other parts they are harder to find, so the price goes up. Also some guys don’t like cleaning and tuning them so they’ll pay more for completed planes.
