RARE FIRST MODEL CC HARLOW MADE PHILLIPS PATENT PLOW PLANE CA 1872

Regular price $650.00 USD

From what I've been able to research (primarily in PTAMPIA Vol 1), this is what I believe to be a first production run Phillips patent plow plane. It is stamped on the front corner of the skate, CC HARLOW MAKER BRIDGEWATER MASS and also has the PHILLIPS BABSON & REPPLIER logo on the rear of the skate. Comes with a single double ended cutter and both depth stops. Overall condition is complete and good with no damage. The original rear tote in beech is complete but roughly textured. Japanning is about 70% intact and there is some light pitting on some of the metal components. One original cutter intact.
