Hey guys, I have a question, I have a stanley Bailey #5.
It is made in England and I know there are people with some made in the USA and maybe even Canada.
In time, Which is older, The #5 made in England, or the #5 made in North America.
Any comments will be appriciated.

They were made in both USA and England at the same time.

There are type studies of USA Stanley planes to identify them
but I think no type study published of English ones.
