Vintage Stanley Plastic handled chisels are not covered by John Walter in his “Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools: Guide to Identity & Value” (Second Edition 1996). However, large quantities were manufactured, and used, in years past. They were of high quality and were renowned for their ruggedness and durability. They now are frequently offered on e-bay and by used tool purveyors—they are collectible and often realize quite high prices.
I have composed a web page at http://jp29.org/wwstanplastichandles.htm which is devoted to these chisels from the period 1934-1958, that includes a tabulation of data extracted from my Stanley catalogs of that period that I hope will be of use to those interested in these chisels. Please follow the link—I most earnestly solicit all comments, suggestions and corrections, via my Comments and Suggestions Message Board (link at the bottom of my web page) if you wish.
