What it's worth is what he can get someone to pay for it. I wouldn't give more than $20.

Oh, it appears to be a copy of a #4, possibly a #3. A #4 would be about 9" long.

On EBay I see sellers asking crazy prices.

Today's listings.
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=...man+hand+plane

I would offer $10. These were an inexpensive line of hand planes.

If the blade is 1 3/4in wide it is equivalent to Stanley #3.

If the blade is 2in wide, it is equivalent to Stanley #4.

I would say its a Craftsman made by Millers Falls. I would say its worth about $10.

I have what may be the same plane, but I was given mine 1972 by the kids as a Christmas gift. I was wondering about the manufacturer...did Miller Falls do most of the Craftsman planes? I still have mine, more for sentimental value than anything....

Craftsman planes where made pretty much buy everybody at some point. Sargent, Stanley and millers falls made a large portion. They were just like the manufactures line, so although they are less valuable because they say craftsman, they make the exact same user.
