Probably not much - it had a whole decal at that point.

Geez - I've got block planes bigger than that thing!

Could it be worth that much, even to a collector?

Yep. The No1 is exceptionally hard to come by and most serious Stanley plane collectors covet it and don't consider their collection complete without it. If the little critter had come with its carton and a complete decal godonlyknows what it would've gone for.

A good one nowadays can get as much as US$3000.00.

On a different note: there is a guy in Australia who wants me to make him a #1 sized version of my S45. It is on the todo list.

Will that cost more or less than the regular size?

The Stanley #1 is obviously priced for collectors that are completing out their Stanley collections -- The current price for a Lie Nielsen #1 is $225. (with a corrugated base $260 ).

Geez, imagine what a Marcou in nice condition will bring in 80 or 90 years. I can hardly wait.

I think the S45 is a perfect size as it is.
