stanley 10 1/2 a useful tool?

Found a Stanley 10 1/2 for sale and curious if this is a tool worth having around the shop? I dont recall needing to plane rabbits for a long time and wondering what other uses for this unique hand plane?

Asking price is $125, certainly not a garage sale find but not sure of the value of this item.

Thank you for your replies.

I would love to have a 10 1/2. I think they'd be very useful. If it were me I'd use it as a jack, for shooting miters, for cleaning rabbets, shoulders, cutting shallow rabbets....all types of cool stuff for the carriage makers plane.

$125 USD is a fair price for one w/ a corrugated sole, in good shape.
I have seen them go for as much as $300 USD in like new condition.
