Topic tags/keywords: plane question

I found this hand plane at an auction today. There is no identifying marks on it other than U S PAT NO 1914609. Can anyone identify it by the looks???

I think it should be temporarily named Plane Doe.

Thanks for posting this. I’ve had one of these laying around my shop for a few years and never got around to looking it up. Solved that mystery!

Looks like a hand plane to me. Maybe for woodworking or something.
