    I’ve recently acquired this No. 4, and I’ve never seen one like it before. I was left to wonder if any of you here might be able to shed some light on it for me. As you might notice, it doesn’t have a patent date, but rather a patent applied for marking. Thanks for any help!

    This is all I found but the link was dead, I wouldn’t do any work on it till you make some proper inquiries after all it could be worth a mint.

    Agree with Salko, wouldn’t touch it until you’ve done your due diligence. Found this link by searching through pics, also supertools.com however i find the discriptions dont always maych up to link pics.

    1932 – Stanley cataloque. Price – real bargain…
