L12 - Stanley No. 96 Rosewood Triple Stock Level. 

The largest (30”) rosewood brass bound level in Stanley’s arsenal was first produced 1897 in a form with fairly crudely applied brass bind and brass end tips.  Later, in 1911 is was produced in a more conventional brass binding with full end caps and with a five piece stock, until its demise in 1935.  The example here is in the early form.  The plumb vial cover plate carries the Stanley name, and the patent dates, 6-7-91; 2-4-96; & 6-23-96.  The level is in quite decent shape.  The brass trim has been polished.  The rosewood has nice grain and is dark, with fairly few dings.  It has good vials and will be a good user as well as a nice example of the early form of Stanley’s brass bound levels.  Good+
