Look on the underside of the plane where the blade protrudes from the sole. This is the mouth. You don’t want it chipped. Make sure there aren’t any weld marks or cracks. Check to see if the iron it pitted. A broken wooden part isn’t usually such a big deal (with the exception of the scraper, possibly). These are pretty bulletproof planes.
