I picked these up from my grandfather today. He said he got them when he returned from the Korean War in the 50’s but I think it was later than that. The block plane is a 110 and I’m not sure what the other is but I’m guessing its a Stanley Type 20 made in the 60’s. The only markings are “Made in the USA” and a faint 01 or 10, nothing else. I don’t imagine they’re collectable but they have a lot of intrinsic value. I can recall seeing them when I was a child and I’m sure each dig has a story. I plan to clean them up and put them back into service, they’ll be my first pair of hand planes.

I’m not sure why the image is upside down, I tried several downloads before giving up
