Lovely D. COLTON Philadelphia Molding Plane – 1837-80
David Colton is noted as having made planes in Philadelphia from 1837 until his death in 1880. The mark most closely matches the AWP5 “C” mark, with the addition of “No. 338 N. Fourth St.” stamped underneath. Heel is stamped 7/8 and 1 1/2. Excellent example noting a section of missing lignum boxing. OAL: 9.5″.
