My wife recently purchase a box of tools on an on-line auction.  In the box was this mystery plane.  No name on it except for "4 edge blade" No. 3740 Pat. Pending.  It's all aluminum and painted what looks like O.D. Green.  Is this a plane that was manufactured during WW II?  It looks to be junk to me but, who knows for sure.  I've seen this someplace else but, I can't remember where.  Can you help with the mystery?

From what I found they were made in the 1960s by Sargent.

Corelz125, thanks again.  Now that I have that information, I have dug a little further into the plane itself and found out more.  It was made by Sargent for Sears under their "Craftsman" brand.  They aren't as valuable as they Sargent No. 600 which is the same plane.  Thanks for everything.   You've been a big help.
