Hi guys,
While on vacation last week a ran across this plane in a thrift shop.
It looks like a Stanley No 27 Transitional but there are no markings.
The only thing that says Stanley on it is the Iron and it looks like a Sweetheart to me.
Your thoughts.

On that same trip I found a little shop that was going out of business and found this little guy for almost nothing.

I googled its logo but everything I can find is in German and my google would not translate it for me.
It looks and feels like it is a pull plane.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

The bottom one looks like an EC Emmerich. Top one …. tough to say. They’re usually stamped on the toe. Any markings on the castings or the lateral adjuster lever?

-- Its not a crack, its a casting imperfection.

The lateral lever is pretty rusty. Maybe after some clean up I can tell better. All I can see so far is the stamping on the Iron. Thank you for the info in the little plane. I figure for $10 is was hard to go wrong.

Check for an imprint where indicated—it may be faint (end grain)

The German style plane is a horn plane. They
are pushed typically but can easily be pulled
as well, probably easier than a Bailey style
plane, which cut fine on the pull but are ergonomically
awkward in the pull position. With a brand like
Rakovnik I think it may not be made in Germany.

If it was there it has long been worn off. My mind wants to see a faint “Y” but it might just be a small dent.
