I believe the vintage #92 Stanley shoulder is 3/4” with #93 being 1”.

Of those two, bigger is better; I reach for the #93 more than 90% of the time for trimming shoulders of tenons as well as tenons themselves (if it’s rough work and I don’t want to break out the router plane). We were just talking about this stuff the other day on the “Handplanes of Your Dreams” thread.
