IMO, new Stanleys are garbage. Other folks can tell you what you might want is a refurb. I have a #4 ground by Tablesaw Tom and a bronze LN # 4. The LN is far more precise. I enjoy using precision tools and I craved one of these planes for 15 years before acquiring one. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
