I’ve seen similar in California for $50 to $75 in antique stores. I am guessing this varies quite a bit by location.

its all depending on conditions of the plane and if there has been some restoring on it
if so it can devalueate it pretty much allso its depend on age and the maker of them

they seems to be in pretty good shape to be used after a little tune up , in the shop
instead of collecting dust on a shelf

well Isnt the maker Hall case co.? thats whats stamped on the end of the plane. Also I found out that this company went out of business in 1852 so its pretty old. Thanks for your info I appreciate it.

I would agree that Hall Case Co. is the manufacture if that is what is stamped on the plane…. Have you seen the photos in the handplane of your dreams thread?

Also, you might be interested in this thread showing the restoration of an old wooden plane to where it is able to be put back in use…

Thanks for that thread of the hand plane of your dreams, those are some superb planes wow thats pretty cool, I just got into collecting about six months ago. With those 2 planes I just picked up I also got a stanley no. 122 with the liberty bell on it which I think is pretty cool. got all 3 planes for 20$ at a flea market.

$20 is a good price for the lot. The two wooden planes look to be in good enough condition to be put back into use. I’m not a collector (I swear), I just have a lot of old planes that I use. Most of mine are metal such as old Stanleys, though I have a number of of wooden planes as well…

Ok well I found a little bit more info on this hall case co. there from Columbus Ohio an were only open from 1847-1852 when they were absorbed by the Ohio Tool co. Thought that was cool, Has anyone ever seen one of these planes from this company?
