Stanley 39

I have an opportunity to make an offer on one on line. 3/8 wide, with both nickers and seems to work as intended.
What is a fair offer?

I'd think it depends on whether it's gonna be a user or a mantle piece. A user doesn't need to be perfect so a lower price but if it will sit on your display case and is in mint condition, then expect to dole out a bit more greenbacks.

For a daily user,.........maybe up to 50-75 shipping included

Display in mint condition.......150ish.

Others will chime in and say I'm way off base, and if I am I apologize.

Thank you. It is a user, nothing pretty to look at.

I agree with $50 as an offering price with an upper limit of $75 if negotiating.  

Shipping USPS should be in the neighborhood of $18 for a suitable box and PROPER PACKING.  You don't want a $75 worth of broken cast iron. Smile

I gave one complete 39 3/8s away several months ago to the disabled woodworker here and I think I still have another one complete if that one goes to high.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

This is one of the #39s Arlin gave away.....I had to replace a few parts, but it works, now... Winkgrin 
   
Needs a batten to guide it across the board...
   
Helps if you do a knife/saw cut on the far end... Cool
   
Or a bead or two.  This #39 cuts a 3/8" wide dado. 

Do not confuse one of these with a rebate plane.. Rolleyes 
   
Whole nother animal.....the #78 is for rebates.  Closest it gets to a dado, is on the end of a board.
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that
