Stanley No 62 low Angle plane. In very good order. Looks better than this one . Asking $320

That is a very good price for a #62 if it is in good condition. Check the mouth carefully for cracks. These planes are built from grey cast iron and the thin soles were their weak area.
I have one and I do use it. Neverheless, it is not a good user at that price - the LV LA Jack (#62 1/2) is far, far better - and a lot cheaper. Consider the #62 more of a collector's item.
