Stanley Bailey No. 1 for $1500

Stanley No.1 on e-bay (not mine) -- looks correct from a cursory look -- no lateral adjustment lever -- solid (no depression) brass adjustment screw, etc.

Something looks funny with the mouth opening to me. Maybe just the light or something, but it looks unsquare

The only value of that #1 is as a collector, not a user. If I needed a #1, I'd buy a Lie-Nielsen #1 for $225. What does one use a #1 size hand plane for? A block plane fits my hand much better.

Looks like he put it to a wire wheel, on the body at least. I always thought that would detract from the value as far as the collectors go.

Oh yeah, that baby has been tarted up to look her best. The description pretty much tells the story. BUT, remember, there are collectors and there are collectors. A new collector with money to burn is probably who bought this, not an experienced one.

#1 Stanley Plane

Apparently he did not get the $1500 as it is now relisted under the value of $1100.
