     The first corrugated sole came out in 1898

  **Note: An “S” cast in the bed indicate a type 7.  

The letter “S” cast into the frog, lever cap, and/or bed is likely the mark of the Sessions Foundry, who contracted with Stanley to produce their castings.





I restored a type 7(?) #7. It fits the descriptions of a type 7 with everything except it has right handed threads. Right handed threads went out with the type 5, which is a different frog style. I’m a bit intrigued. Anybody ever seen right handed threads on a later plane.
