Well, my mother purchased a Miller’s Falls hand plane for me at an antique store near her… I have no idea what type it is, because the only markings on the plane are “Made in USA” in front of the tote, and on the back side of the lever cap there is a “Patent Apld For”
It is 18 inches long, and everything is in excellent condition except for the tote which is cracked and I am replacing. Japaning is about 80% still there, and only light surface rust on the sole… the blade is still pretty long as well.
I’m refinishing this plane to use it, so as long as I can get it to work well, it doesn’t matter to me what it looks like. I’m really happy I now have a long jointer plane! She got it for $25, which is much better than I have been able to find, so I am also jealous of her luck finding it.
