EDIT: It is actually a 5A X.. That tells you how much crud is on it.
I just picked up this at a community garage sale for 35 bucks. I can not find any real info on it. The only other one I can find are about the No. 7 X. How rare is this plane and How old is it? I assume its pretty old considering the hole at the top of the blade. Well I plan to do a light cleaning just to get the crud off. If it turns out to rare I will leave it at that and just sharpen it. I can’t wait to see how it compares to my Stanley. The only damage I could find is to the tote at the very front where the screw goes. It is also missing one of the brass nuts in the tote. I have quite a few of them so finding one that fits should be no prob. Let me know what you think.
