Could you post some pics of the bed, and the bottom of the old (presumably broken) frog so we know what to look for? I’ve got some generic #4/5 sized frogs around somewhere but don’t really know what they might fit.

yep. I knew that going in. I’ve only seen 2 of these planes ever, and one has a broken frog. But who knows what I’ll find while looking for a shaw patent frog!

Type 1 is rosewood

Everything else in this series was East India Mahogany.

In the 400 series they used rosewood until 1909, then East India Mahogany until 1924, then whatever mahogany they could find until1949 when they switched to hardwood
