The bed is marked with 1 patent date,that is "APR-19-10" just behind the frog, and is marked "BAILEY NO. 3" in the front knob area. Also please note the "STANLEY TOOLS" logo sticker on the tote handle.  This plane is 9" long and has a 1-3/4" wide blade. The condition is very good working order, with a good flat bottom, some minor pitting on about 30% of the bare metal surface, not rusty now at all. Overall a very nice, clean, smaller plane!
