One of my favourite of all the patent planes because of its graphic beauty and graceful lines. Absolute no damage to the main body, lever cap, adjuster or iron. When I found this plane the front knob was badly damaged and the rear tote had been replaced with a chunk of wood. I had perfect replicas made based on measurements off of an existing plane and sourced from antique tropical hardwood. The screws and brass ferrule for the knob and tote are 100% original as found on the plane when I bought it. Original iron is stamped 'AMERICAN MFG CO. PHILA'. Beautiful example.
