Stanley # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Smooth Plane   This Stanley #1 smooth plane is in nice overall condition. This later #1 Stanley has the notched rectangle logo on the cutter and dates from after 1936.

There is no rust or pitting on the body and the original japanning is about 98% or so.  There are a few tool box type dings on the side walls as seen in the pics.  The lever cap has some stains, but no pitting or rust.  The rosewood handle and knob are nice, but have little original finish on them.  The handle and knob had been painted red at one time and most of the original finish was lost removing that.  The throat has a tiny imperfection, like a 1/32 I have pictured.  A pretty nice example that could be further cleaned up to be at least fine and a highlight of any Stanley tool collection.

Stanley # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Smooth Plane   This Stanley #1 smooth plane is in fine condition. It is all original and has had nothing done to it beyond a lite clean.  The  J Logo cutter is full length.  The J logo, Stanley in a notched rectangle dates this plane from after 1935.

There is no rust or pitting, just genuine patina on the body and sole.  The original japanning is about 98% or so. The Stanley marked lever cap has no pitting or rust and is very nice.  The throat is perfect.  The rosewood handle and knob are nice noting crazing in the finish.  A nice example that will be the highlight of any Stanley plane or tool collection.

Early No. 1 Stanley Smooth PlaneEarly No. 1 Stanley Smooth Plane   This early Stanley #1 smooth plane is in nice overall condition.  The original japanning is about 80% or so.   It has the I frame below the frog making it a type 1 or 2.  According to the type study, the only thing keeping it from being a type 1 is that the lever cap does not have a banjo spring.  In fact many people would call this a type 1 just because of the I frame.  Very very few #1 planes are known with a banjo cap.   In either case, it dates from approx. 1867 - 1872.

The plane has a couple of minor apologies that can be overlooked given the rareness of this plane.  The sides have a couple of small insignificant patches of pitting.  (see pics)  The throat area has a tiny hairline / crack behind the cutter that is stable.  It has a properly marked long cutter w/ some minor pitting at the top. There are a few tool box type dings on the side walls and sole as seen in the pics. The handle is nice, and the beaded front knob looks pretty good as well.  Very few of these early #1 planes turn up.  It is the first I have had in over 20 years.  Nice enough!!

Stanley # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley Rule & Level Co. # 1 Smooth Plane  This Stanley #1 smooth plane is in about as nice condition as one could ask for.  The tag the collector made out indicates he bought this in 1987.  He determined from the notched rectangle cutter logo that it dated from after 1936.  He must have just gotten his type study and studiously noted this plane's features and his other #1's, trying to exactly type and date them.
 
This plane has no major condition issues.  It looks to have been lapped at some point, and now 30 some years later has developed a nice even patina.  There are spots of minor shelf rust on the sole that will easily clean, and no pitting to speak of.  The cutter is nice and full length.  The throat is good.  The rosewood handle has nearly all of its original finish and is a light colored sap.  It is an original.  The japanning is over 95% and the Stanley marked cap is very nice.  No apologies.  These nice condition #1's just do not appear very often unless coming out of a collection as this one has.  A top shelf example nice enough for any collection.

Square w/ BevelStanley Rule & Level Co. Sweetheart Era # 1 Smooth Plane  This is without a doubt the finest condition Stanley #1 smooth plane I have ever had or offered. It is the best candidate for the phrase "a plane looking for a box" I have ever seen. It is about as close to dead mint as anyone could ask. Check all the pics to see the condition. This is the last and best #1 you will ever see or need.

This superb condition plane has no condition issues or apologies. The cutter is full length, has the original grind, and carries the AA Sweetheart era logo dating this plane from 1923 - 1935. The heavily grained Rosewood handle and knob look great and both have 99% of their original finish. The japanning is near 100%. No apologies. This plane has not been rehabbed or gone over. It is all original. I guarantee it. This is the one for the center spot on the top shelf of any Stanley or plane collection. Highly Recommended!!

Stanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane  This is about the nicest Stanley #1 I have had the pleasure to offer in over 20 years.  It is flawless.  The previous owner who attended the West Coast Tool Meetings back in the heyday bought some very nice Stanley pieces, and this was his nicest buy.  It was bought it back in the 80's, and I think he tried it once before putting it in a display to never be used again.  The worst anyone could say about it is that the finish on the handle has some minor crazing.  Look at all the pics.  You will not find a nicer one offered anywhere.

Stanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane  This is a super condition Stanley #1 smooth plane. It has the AA trademark logo on the full length original grind cutter.  It has a very nice smooth cap which would indicate this is a type 12 and so the date can be further narrowed to between 1923 & 1925 if Roger Smiths type study holds true for #1's.  I have has slightly later #1's with the Stanley cap and so this makes sense.

This sweet little #1 Stanley plane saw little if any use.  The  full length cutter has just minor spotting / stains. The plane has not been over-cleaned. The original japanning is near perfect and at least 98% remaining.  The sides still show the original milling and just a few minor stains.   The  full grained dark heartwood Rosewood handle is near perfect and most of the original finish remains.  The front knob looks great noting one small hairline in the wood at the base.  One of the frog screws looks to be a replacement, but it threads in and tightens properly.  A super nice plane that will be a welcome addition to the collection.  It will be some time before a nicer example is available.   Highly recommended.

Stanley Sweetheart Era # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane  This is a super condition Stanley #1 smooth plane. It has the AA trademark logo on the cutter and Stanley on the lever cap.  That would date this plane from after 1925 and prior to1935 when the cutter logo was changed to the Stanley in the notched rectangle logo.  The heart is hard to see in the pic because of the glare, but it is there.   It is near impossible to further pinpoint the exact date of manufacture. 

This sweet little #1 plane saw little if any use.  The cutter is full length and has just minor spotting / stains. It has not been over-cleaned, lapped or messed with. The japanning is near perfect and at least 98%.  There is some light staining to the sole, but it is not pitting.  The sides still show the original milling and just a few minor stains.  These could easily be lapped out to make this plane grade to be near mint.   The handle and knob are both near perfect and so is the finish on them.   There is just a couple of minor spots of corrosion on the lever of the cap.  This will clean as well.   Look at all the pics.  It will be some time before a nicer example is available.  A super nice plane that will be a welcome addition to the collection.  Highly recommended.

Stanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane  Minty Nice.  No Apologies other than some staining of the sole.    It has been many years since I have had one with this nice a decal on the handle.  It is near perfect as is the rest of the plane. 

This super condition Stanley #1 smooth plane has the AA trademark logo on the cutter and Stanley on the lever cap.  That would date this plane from after 1925 and prior to1933 when the cutter logo was changed to the Stanley in the notched rectangle logo.  That would make it a type 13 - 15.

The cutter is full length and has just minor spotting / stains.  It has not been over-cleaned, lapped or messed with. The japanning is near perfect and at least 98%.  There is some light staining to the sole, but it is not pitting.  The sides still show the original milling and just a few minor stains.  The handle and knob are both near perfect and so is the finish on them.  Again check out the decal.  it is original, and not a new addition I have heard are being offered.  Look at all the pics.  It will be some time before a nicer example #1 Stanley plane is available.  A super condition plane that will be the highlight of the collection.  Highly recommended.

Stanley #1 Smooth Plane2 Stanley #1 Smooth Planes  The Stanley #1 is the most avidly sought of all Stanley Planes for tool collectors.   These 2 examples are the famous Stanley / Bailey #1 Smooth Plane.  On the left is a nice example that is in super nice original condition.  It is a earlier model  pre 1920's which is denoted by the lack of the Stanley logo cast into the cap.  Other than the name Stanley cast into the lever cap on later models, and the logo on the cutter the #1 plane body was unmarked.  The finish on the handle and knob are original and 90% or more of the original japanning remains.  There is no rust or pitting to speak of on the body or sole.  The throat is the proper size and nice as well with no stress cracks or  widening from chips.  The cutter is a more recent NOS replacement with the notched rectangle mark. I have another earlier cutter for it, but it is worn and the logo is unreadable.    There are plenty of #1 planes out there, but not many in as nice condition as this example.

On the left is another example from the same general era with the T logo on the cutter.  The handle and knob are original and in super condition.  The paint / japanning is original and near perfect as well.  There is some light staining / patina on the body sides but no pitting or rust.  The lever cap has the proper B casting mark on the back side.  It is as nice an example as you will find anywhere.

Stanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane  This is a very nice Stanley #1.  It has the AA trademark logo on the cutter and Stanley is not on the cap, so we can date this down to just a couple of years from 1923 -1925 if the type study is correct.

This sweet little #1 plane saw little use, and has never been cleaned, lapped or messed with.   The one apology is a hairline crack in the Rosewood rear tote that is nearly invisible.   This could probably made completely invisible by gluing and refinishing it, but the original finish and look are to nice right now.  I do not think it has ever been glued, and I did not take it apart to check.  The japanning is near perfect, and with a light clean to the cutter this would rate as Fine+ on anyone's chart.  Look at all the pics.  A nice plane that will be a welcome addition to the collection.

Stanley # 1 Smooth Plane c. 1870's Type 3 / 4Stanley # 1 Smooth Plane c. 1870's Type 3 / 4  This early Stanley #1 smooth plane is in very nice overall condition  The cutter has a J trademark which would make it a type 3 / 4 dating from 1872 / 1884.  Number 1 planes are hard to type because they are missing many of the features that larger planes had.  Patent dates, laterals, other markings, and so forth.   I think it is a type 3 / 4  because of the low milled receiver with no indent.  Type 6 planes from after 1888 would have recesses milled into the receiver.   

This plane has no major condition issues. It has developed a nice even patina and there is no rust and just minor pitting.  The cutter is nice and full length.  The J trademark is faint and there is some light pitting near the top.  The cap iron is clearly marked with Leonard Bailey patent info (see pics).  The rosewood handle looks great and has nearly all of its original finish as does the nice low knob with beaded base. The japanning is thin and approx. 70%.  The throat is proper and has not been opened.  No apologies.  These early models are much harder to find than later ones.  A top shelf example nice enough for any collection.

Stanley # 2 C Smooth PlaneStanley # 2 C Smooth Plane  This example of the hard to find Stanley # 2C smooth plane has a light coating of the gloss lacquer that the collector use to coat the majority of his planes with to prevent rust.  It will come off with a bath of denatured alcohol or steel wool and paint thinner.

It has been said that corrugated Stanley # 2 size planes are harder to find than the popular and pricey #1 Stanley planes.   Because of this some greedy and unscrupulous sellers have gone to the extreme of having grooves cut in to regular smooth bottom examples.  Some were done very well and are hard to tell from originals, others were poorly done.  I guarantee that the grooves in this are factory and that it is "right".

There is no pitting or damage.  The wood is nice noting that it appears the top of the tote has been reshaped a bit.  Also I believe a proper sweetheart era cutter has been installed as it has a different new like patina.  .  The japanning is approximately 90%.  A hard to find plane in good +  condition.
