An antique shop close to my house has this handplane. I have no idea who makes it.
They also hav a Stanley I’m thinking about getting but I believe it has plastic handles

Prices are $10 for the odd ball and $15 for the Stanley

For that price both are probably worth it. Do they have stamped steel frogs? Frog adjustment screws?

With the kidney shaped slot in the lever cap, I think that puts the stanley in the post war era. Still probably a good user. Search online for a plane type guide and you might be able to glean more from the photo.

I bet it will work fine when tuned. That other one looks like it could we fine too.

Top pne looks like a Sargent made for a hardware store brand. You might make PPK jealous…I’d also ask about that wood bodied plane sitting beside it

The Stanley is a Type 21, and MIGHT have been made in England…or it could have been made in USA. Still a decent enough plane.

Might offer to buy both for one money @ $20 or so…..see what they say. And find out about the wood bodied plane as well.

I kind of thought the top one might hav been a store brand since the WTS looks painted an not engraved. An I’d say they’d do $20 for both. They r nice folks an easy to deal with. They seem to always hav good prices on metal planes bandit but their wooden planes tend to be $40 or more so I don’t generally mess with them.
I’m starting to figure out that u can’t hav just one or two hand planes lol
