Gleave No. 8 Hollow. Oldham St. Manchester. The nearly 2″ iron is also stamped Gleave on the tang. After I purchased my half set last fall, this was my one duplicate. Messrs. S. Forster and M. Loughlin called this plane theirs.
Call it yours for $25.
Well, not sold, exactly. I decided to set this tool aside for my son, whose interest in woodworking has been growing steadily.
