Stanley No. 3 Smooth Plane 1910-18
This is a very clean Stanley No. 3 smooth plane with the rosewood handles and the non-corrigated bottom. It has no cracks and the Japanning is about 95% intact. The rosewood handles look great with some of the lacquer worn off, but no major wear or damage. The blade is sharp and has plenty of stock left for future resharpening. The blade is marked with the V logo and reads "STANLEY NEW BRITAIN CONN. USA" on it. The bed is marked with 3 patent dates, the last is "APR-19-10" just behind the frog, and is marked "BAILEY NO. 3" in the front knob area. This plane is 8" long and has a 1-3/4" wide blade. The condition is good++, with a good flat bottom, some very minor pitting in small areas on the side walls of the bed, and some pitting on the bottom, but considered minor as the plane still cuts real well. Overall a very nice, clean, smaller plane!
