This is an early Stanley number 2 wood plane. However, it may have a newer model frog. Because the type 4 wouldnt have had a lateral adjustment lever. Ive also read that the number 2s do not follow the type studies very well. Theres all kinds of inconsistencies. So this could be a type 5 or type 6 era plane. This sole has no markings cast into it. The frog has a B cast into it as does the lever cap. The lateral adjustment lever has one Patent date of February 24, 1888 and the Blade says patent April 19, 1892. There is a chip out of the corner of the lever cap, the knob is cracked and the tote has been repaired. The sole has two cracks. It looks to have been cracked a long time ago and is still holding together. It seems like it would still be usable. See pictures for further details. Feel free to ask any questions.
