« Part 7: Tongue and Groove Wooden Plane indentification Part 8 of Antique Tool Box series Part 9: Wooden Moulding Plane ID »

Next up to bat in tool chest: 3/4” round profile groove plane?

The marks on ends of this one is different than others. Has same “EPC”,
but also shows “A. HOLAND & Co”
This plane has evidence of heavy use. Has hammer marks on back, and well worn bottom.

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