I recently won another auction for box of misc planes. I love these auctions because you never know what you are going to get. This box had a old Craftsman block plane and a couple Stanley Jack Planes.
One of the Stanley Jack planes I got still has a lot of the Stanley decal left on it. I don’t see these decals show up often on the old planes.
My question is what kind of difference does this make in the value? I buy the old planes to restore but I want to be real careful with this tote if the decal adds value. If its a few bucks then no big deal but if it doubles the value or something I would like to know.
I am also considering keeping the plane to restore and removing the tote and selling that alone on ebay. I would think that would have some demand to it alone. Maybe?
I just thought I would run it by you guys and see what you think.
