You hardly ever get to see an old Stanley 3 plane in this kind of condition. Looks like it never got any dust on it. The top of the box is nice. The bottom inner portion of the box has a scuff mark. The plane is crisp although the is dark spots here and there on the sides and bottom.
It looks like pitting but it is not. It is nice and smooth metal. I don't know if you can clean those spots if it bothers you. Check out the photos for condition.
