Liberty Bell Stanleys

Question    
I found one, now I own it.  What have I got?  A transitional smoother 8" long with a 1 3/8" iron.  Really nice condition.

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

Maybe a #122?
   
Sound about right? Cool
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

They are decent planes, with a cool story. Not highly collectible, nor valuable. There's 4 sizes (IIRC) in the full set. Folks who see mine love them, but they fall a little short on ease of use compared to the Bailey's.

They are neat, though.

I have one and hope to get the other 3.  I just love them because of what they meant the 100 year celebration.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Thanks guys. Don't ask me how, years of not seeing a transitional that wasn't solid gold in the seller's mind, I now have a half dozen awaiting some TLC.
