Now I can't tell ()

William Duffield
The plane is flat on the far (down) side, and it runs in the rabbet that is the same width. The strange recess just appears to stop at the same place as the outside fence due to the angle of the photograph. Maybe the recess once held a manufacturer's name plate. Since the top of the outside fence is the same color as the original bottom of the channel, it appears to be coplanar to it, but it is not. Look closely at the ends of the near side fence to see that it is above the bottom of the channel. Something else I don't understand is the scallop out of the top of the nose on the near end, since it doesn't have the same scallop out of the nose on the far end. Maybe it was dropped and a large chip was knocked out.
