Mystery Plane has a cast iron frog. On the iron, I can make out two lines, wriitten in Script form. Apparenttly it is for someones True Value store. It has a cheapo lateral, stuck on an early Stanley frog. No “gap-toothed one here.

The “Parts Plane is a Worth (less, I know) that can provide spare parts for a PARPLUS #5 I have, even the (now) shiny lever caps match. There is a stamped steel “toad” under the iron on it. Dark blue paint on the base. Handle bolts are just that, bolts. One piece bolts.

Mystery Plane’s tote is in the clamps, glued up a crack that went all the way through. May strip the finish( what’s left) and see what the wood is. Maybe just a coat or two of BLO?

$25 for the pair, after talking they owners down from $40. So, about $12.50 a piece?? Not too hatefull. And, I still had to go to work that night, for a 12 hr. shift. Pictures are after some of the crud was cleaned up.
