I found this plane recently and since I don’t have jack plane I snapped it up (for free) and put it back in service again after it had languished around for many many years. Not sure the exact maker and age, and I’m sure it’s impossible to get too accurate, but maybe someone here can help zero in on it a little more.

Yes, it looks like sister co. Marsh and Rockford were bought out by Stanley in 1929. Which would make this plane about 100 yrs old. Happy to say it’s ready for another 100 yrs of service.
