Yes since then I've discovered that Stanley planes were also manufactured in Australia and England. The Canadian ones are considered of good quality I gather, the English and Australian ones less so.
The #5 that I mentioned was actually a #4 and it is still my favourite plane. Nice rosewood handles and a pleasure to use. The hardwood handles on the English and Australian planes I have are not as nice to hold.
