#10
  
$30 + sales tax..... Rolleyes

And a surprise.. Uhoh 
   
3 Patent dates..... Cool 
But..there is a couple strangers involved.. Confused
   
Like a SW iron?

Ok...tore it down to just ..parts 
   
First surprise was the front knob was a Millers Falls one....happen to have a spare Stanley one...
   
This was a bit better.....type 11 / 12 base....no pitting, no cracks...
   
Small parts seemed to match up with the base sating.    That chipbreaker even has the underside a blue colour...Iron may be almost the only "new" parts
     
Well other than the front handle..and this lever cap....
   
Frog seemed to be correct.   

To be continued.... Winkgrin

Went ahead and sharpened the iron.....got the chipbreaker to sit up close to the edge.    Iron's back needed flattened.   Went to assemble everything back together..
   
For some reason...mouth opening didn't ......was too tight...I even backed the frog back a bit....nada.    Turned out, the iron was a bit thicker than the plane needed....I also backed the chipbreaker back from the edge a bit.    Filed the front of the opening a bit.  Picture above is the result....it will cut, no chatter.   Cool
   
Gives me two smoothers, with the grooved bottoms.. Winkgrin
   
The Stanley #4c was a Made in England   Rolleyes 
   
So...may just keep this No. 3 c around? Confused  
   

In case the rest of the Type 11 parts show up... Winkgrin

Love #3's.  Also love corrugated bottoms.  They tune up so well as they are so easy to "flatten".  

Nice find, and thanks for sharing.

BTW....the plane hanging around in the background?     A Sargent made Dunlap #3 sized, smooth soled plane..
   
Happen to have a few planes in the #3 size range

Sweet! I found one similar a year or so ago. I cleaned it up intending to sell it, but then after trying it out, I just couldn't put it down. It's become a regular user in my shop.

Great buy, and a nice clean-up job to boot. Well done!
