I was checking out a flea market today and found a number 2 for 195.00 which seemed high to me since it was missing the cap, blade, chip breaker and cap screw. The knob had a chip out of the bottom but the handle was sound. The rest of the frog was intact and the body would clean up nicely with a little wd40. No pitting, chips, or other issues.

They also had an interesting stanley with an aluminum handle but instead of the sides by the frog being convex they had a concave cut out that seemed to be original.

Not knowing the type, but missing the parts you mentioned, that seems high based on recent ebay sales I have seen.

Number two missing all those parts is worth no more than $80.00.

That’s why I don’t waste my time visiting flea markets anymore. Bunch of overpriced garbage and everything new is made in China.
