It looks a lot like the Stanley no.2..not sure if its a good knock-off or a collaboration of random planes. there isn't a Stanley marking anywhere I can see...only a made in USA embossed below the front handle and a moneys worth stamp on the blade....but that looks newer replacement blade. the base measures 9 3/8" long and 2 3/8" wide....just wondering what your thoughts i have something worth wild here...and how much do you think i can get for it?...thanks

    What you have is a smooth plane. I seriously doubt it is a Stanley if it isn't marked. If you Google it you will see the dimensions are off by quite a bit for the #2.

    I can't see the iron clearly but it looks like it has been ground at the outer edges. That is a common thing to get the desires effect for doing reproduction wainscoting or other period restoration work. You grind down the outer edges so you get a minor concave in the surface of the piece you are working.
