    I agree with Erik. Leave it as is and enjoy it on the shelf. Too small to be a user and still pretty enough to look at.

    Thanks for the back story Wayne. I would have a tough time deciding too. #1's even in perfect shape are essentially just shelf ornaments. I'd probably hang on to it since the crack means it wouldn't command top dollar and I don't mind less than perfect examples in my collection.

    Neat find, I would not do any cleaning at this point, decide what you want to do with it first. Most people just put those on a shelf in a collection. Would be a great story of how you found one in the wild.

    Yes Wayne looks like you guessed right, .be very careful about cleaning and you might consider either parting it out or looking for a second hand casting , Believe it or not they do come up for sale occasionally. Be careful going at the sole hard as the frog screws and tote screws can appear through the sole

    Looks like an old Handyman long-handled block plane. I'll give you $22 for it, and I'll throw in shipping.

    As KenL said dont do anything with it untill you know, you could ruin the collector value.
    Lots of online resources ,
