Identify a compass plane

Bob Rush
I just purchased a compass plane at an Estate Sale. This one is different. It has no.113 for cast into the frame. No patent dates. Has what appears to be a sunflower design on the concave/ convex knob and GK stamped on the iron. It looks like a later Stanley with 2 screws retaining the black tote on the back of the frog. It also has the lateral adjustment lever with no markings but built exactly like Stanley’s lateral lever not a bent metal. I would like to show a picture but don’t know how.
