Absolutly Beautiful Planes benjy!!!! You are a lucky man indeed. I have yet to be so lucky as to find a new looking old one! By the way, how much is 25 shillings in US dollars and cents?

The record looks like you just walked out of the hardware storew with it, very pretty : )

>25 shillings in US dollars

20 shillings to a pound. Pound used to float at around 1.5 US dollars...
So...about a buck 85

Someone is bucking for the Suck award....; P
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.
