19/10/2021 – As originally received the plane body and sole had a reasonable amount of surface rust. Sympathetic restoration to be undertaken to get this plane into working condition. Overall, the condition is quite good.
There are a wealth of sites available for Marples’ planes, however this site, I found to be the best in terms of understanding how to date this tool.
