I found this little guy at an antique store, I think is a #2, is 7 1/2 X 1 7/8. It doesn’t say #2 anywhere, here are some pictures


Regards

If the blade is 1 5\8” its a #2.

That’s the right size for a #2. The blade you’ve got looks like a type 10, form 1902-09. If that’s the case, there should be two patent dates on the bed. But the lever cap for that year should not say Stanley, so it has probably been replaced. At any rate, it looks lice a nice find.

It doesn’t have any marks just Stanley on the lever cap and the ones on the blade.

Have you taken it apart? Are there any marking on or under the frog?

Oh well, it still looks like a very nice little #2. It may not have as much value as an original Stanley with all the proper parts, but still a good find.

can we see a picture of the frog without the blade on it. That may give some clues.

I know the type study’s are based on #4s, so everything else is a little different. I know earlier Stanley’s didn’t have Bailey cast,so its possible. A little more research would be needed, but I think it may be a Stanley. Match the base with the types on my site and see what base you have.

Hard to say for sure, but it looks to me like the lateral adjuster has Stanley stamped into it.

Check the threaded parts on other older Stanley planes. If you get a match then it is very likely to be Stanley (uses non-standard threads).

A bolt from my #3 fits, the only difference is the bolt of the #3 is longer
Thank you all for the replays
