$60 each or $60 for all 4?

$60 for all four is a great deal. The #4 looks like a pre-depression model, but it’s hard to tell from just one view which type it is exactly. The #5 might be late 1930s.

Got a link to the CL ad? I’d be able to tell more from the other views. The block planes look like decent #220s, but I don’t like those as much as 60 1/2 low angle ones.

So the #5 is missing the lateral adjust lever and has a crack on the left side of the casting. It looks like a Type 12.

The #4 is earlier than Type 12.
