What is a # 4 Stanley-Bailey hand plane, really worth in a useable but very unrestored condition? Some light surface rust but for some reason does not have any paint drips on it, which seems the norm for every plane I have purchased.

$20 – $25 depending on type i would say.

that depends on the type. If oneof the later types, $10.
SW and older, $25.

Seems right. IF it’s a collectible type, mayby $40. If not, $20.

They are asking $60.00! I have two #4’s already, and the last I purchased about five years ago. I think I paid $10.00 for it then. I was wondering could their value have jumped that much?

England Stanleys are newer models, and are not more valuable than U.S.A made.
$20.00 tops. Less is better.
