The Smoother plane family, from left to right; 

#2 Type 7 (1893-1899), 
#3 Type 11 (1910-18), 
#4 Type 9 (1902-07), 
and the ultimate #4-1/2 Type 13 (1925-28).

The #3 is used mostly for small parts and very localized difficult wood grain. The #4 is used extensively on any boards' surface and the #4-1/2 is for bigger wood surfaces.
