A rare American STANLEY No.54 plow (or plough) & rabbet plane.

Only produced for a short period between 1937 and 1949 the No.54 is identical to the No.50 apart from the lack of spurs and a depth stop on the sliding section.  The No.54 also came with pairs of long and short arms.

Supplied with 8 cutters between 1/8 and 5/8 inches.

Very few of these planes turn up and hence they can demand high prices, especially when they are complete in their original card box with the STANLEY leaflet.
