This was my grandfathers Plane, I’m assuming it’s a rabbit plane with the adjustable foot on it. I was holding on to it just because, but I hate to have it just sitting there collecting dust. The blade has some rust on it, along with the foot. Everything moves on it, I had had everything moving real good a few months ago and was going to try and sharpen the blade on it, then I got nervous I would screw it up. So if someone wants it, make me an offer and pay for the shipping.

That should be A.C. Bartletts, not A.G. , made by Sandusky Tool Co (home of Cedar Point amusement park, a much nicer place to visit in Ohio than say, Cleveland).
Bartlett was president of HSB&Co Hardware 1904-1917 and these planes were made to sell in their store.
