Thanks, bandit! Hmmm, well I have only one #3 plane with a black lever cap. It’s a generic, like yours but does not have a solid steel wheel. Does yours have a stamped steel frog? What is the name stamped into the iron?

Here’s some pics of planes I have that DO have solid adjuster wheels, and lo and behold, they’re all Stanleys of the sick blue paint era, one of which is a Handyman!

Thanks for the pics, hmm maybe we need an ’Orphan Plane Identification” thread where we can post the really difficult planes, by pics of all relevant components.
