    I bid online, at a local estate sale, on this Stanley #4.

    I won the auction and picked it up tonight. I couldn’t believe it came in the original box with the original manual! It’s in very good shape. A little surface rust on the iron and chip breaker but the bottom is pristine and the lever cap is still shiny. The handles look like this plane has never been used.

    I’m thinking it’s from the 1950s. Can anyone confirm? I feel it’s a great deal for $35!!!

    Can’t wait to hone it and set it up and start taking shavings.

    Bill; I use the below web site all the time to determine the age and type of Stanley hand planes. Hope this helps.
