You already have the ID on the transitional. Union X23

No idea on the coffin plane. Looks beefy.

The X series planes were arguably one of the best planes made.

The second one I don’t know about.

Looks like someone had added the new base to an old Coffin smoother, because the mouth opening was too big. Might be a Pattern-maker’s plane?
