« Part 6: Wooden Plane ID? Part 7 of Antique Tool Box series Part 8: Wooden Moulding Plane - 3/4 round groove? »

Decided to post next 2 planes as a set as they appear to be matching 3/4 tongue and groove profiles.

Marking on ends show same “EPC” that many others show. Also have 3/4” stamps.
These both have “DEFOREST” “BIRMINGHAM” mark as well?

First some pictures of groove profile:


Now some pictures of the Tongue profile:


Appreciate any information you can share to educate me on this plane’s vintage or value.
Thanks for looking!

The maker is Linson Deforest and they are circa 1850 to 1857. He had his shop in Birmingham (Derby) CT. I can’t comment on value.
