Item P2 - Stanley No. 3 Smooth Plane.  Type 17 (1941-46). 

This favorite smooth plane dates to the later WWII type, with the lack of nickel plating on the lever cap being only one of the concessions to the shortages of the War.  It also lacks the frog adjustment screw, rosewood in the handles handles, and has a rubber covered steel blade adjusting knob.   The long blade  is tellingly marked with a 1944 manufacturing date.  While much of the original japanning remains in the bed.  All this doesn’t detract from its user quality.  Good+
