so are these valuable/rare??

I saw one at a flea market today – Stanley 110 block plane in good nick with original box…

normally I’d say ten pounds is about right but the lack of advancing screw made me think it might be an old model and perhaps I’ve missed out on a gajillion pounds. thoughts?

Other than that the flea market was great – I’ll have a before/after pic of a nice sliding bevel in a few days

Ben, I’m not sure what advancing screw you mean. A 110 has a wheel under the handle to tighten the iron in place, but that’s about it. You might want to check out this page (scroll down until you get to the 110.)
