As best I can tell, this is a Type 3, made from 1941-49. As you can see from the photos, the tote and knob need some loving attention, and the plating on the lever cap has suffered; thus the lower price. This has the Millers-Falls two-piece lever cap, which applies pressure in three places on the iron and chipbreaker; many people consider Millers Falls planes superior to Stanley, at least partly based upon this lever cap. I could get an 0.002" feeler gauge but not an 0.004" gauge under the straightedge from about halfway behind the mouth back to the heel of the plane. 2" of iron remains from slot to edge. Iron has been ground and honed without camber, ready for you to hone to your needs.
