#42 type 9 (1882-1897)
I have left these images large for clarity. The skate on this
plane also is nickel plated which validates it being a type 9
and not a "married" plane. This last type #42 is very
scarce and I would like to hear of others if you know of them.
I am not aware of any 4 hole fences in gunmetal, though I have
heard rumors. This plane is in excellent condition, many type
9 planes exhibit significant loss of the nickel plating.
