Your comment made me look again. Blade IS marked.

New Britain

... but the plane is longer than the Stanley #21 on supertool. And the base appears to be OAK, not beech.

So… now I’m looking closer at the base and I see this at the toe, imprinted on the wood:

PAT. 6.9.12
Stanley Rule & Level Co

... and then a year, which could read 1882 or might be 1922. Really hard to tell.

Totally missed these markings before. Viewing them under really strong light and wetting the surface to have them show.
