Can you post pictures?

I suggest the “Handplanes of your dreams” thread.

Tough without pictures to tell if either of those markings are the makers mark.

My guess is it’s a craftsman made plane, and they are his initials.

Dutch made maybe?? That’s purely a guess!!

Mainly that “horn” handle on the FRONT of the body.

I had no idea that the “horn” on the plane was Dutch indication, of course i know nothing about wood planes. That’s why I come here- to learn.

ECE (?) Primus are sold nowadays. Mainly Dutch-German style of planes. English ones had the handle on the rear. If you look at the sides of your plane, there just might be a groove on each side. Mainly for the pushing hand to grip the plane right behind the iron.

No grooves on side of plane but it has a a big square nail in front handle going from front to back also a few hammer marks on back of plane from setting plane iron I guess. Is this kind of plane used with iron bevel up or down? Thanks for your opinion.
