Welcome EGM. Do you have pictures? Condition is a big part of value for vintage planes, rare or otherwise. We have quite a few vintage-plane experts here on LJ and they can give you a good sense of its value if you provide pictures.

Does it look anything like this? Mine’s a late type 13, made circa 1928.

I sold the exact same plane a while ago for $265. Nice find!

Price?? Pics?? I’d certainly be interested, but I need more info. Also, I think you need a certain number of posts before you can send PM’s (private messages), so you might want to throw some up.

If it has the Stanley Tools decal on the handle, it’s a late type 13, type 14, or early type 15…1925-1932 range. There should be a patent date in front of the rear tote handle….APR-19-10 if it’s type 13 or 14. If it has a raised ring cast around the front knob, it’s type 14 or newer. If there is no patent date cast into the body behind the frong, it’s type 15. Also, if it’s type 15 the Stanley logo embossed on the lever cap will have an orange background.

Here’s a body from a type 14 with the raised ring and the patent date:

Here’s the front of my type 13 with no raised ring, and no orange in the lever cap:

#2 planes don’t necessarily follow the type studies, but that’s a dead ringer for a Type 13… Wood looks good, slightest chip on the lever cap (bottom corner). Lots of iron to be used up, enough for several lifetimes. And just the right amount of grunge. Very cool tool, hard for me to resist.

I’d say it would probably go on eBay in the $150-$200 range.

Nice find. They are real cool to have in your workbench.

However if you are over 10 years of age or over about 4’ 8” in height your hands are probably too big to comfortably use the tool for very long. Polish it up, hang it up and get a 9 1/2 and a 3 for users.

Looks like a late Type 13 to me….prolly ~ 1928. One that was similar but in a bit rougher shape just sold for $103 on Ebay.

I’d be in for $150 any day but I don’t particularly like the logo’d cap. You’ll have no trouble selling it, that’s for sure.
