This plane is similar profile to post #9, only the width is 5/8. Have “E. P. CHANEY” and “A.HOWARD & Co N.Y.” on one end, and “E. P. CHANEY” plus “5/8” and ” No. 155” on opposite end. Maybe the EPC on other planes means “E. P. CHANEY” as this plane is missing EPC stamp? - - Appreciate any information you can share to educate me on this plane’s vintage or value.Thanks for looking! Only more left!!!!
