The adjusting knob turns freely and adjusts the sole with no issues. The lateral adjustment, the depth adjustment and the frog are all in great working order. The iron measures 1 3/4" by 7 1/4" and is sharp and ready to use.Not sure if it is the original it does have the sweetheart stamp. The sole is stained and has two small areas of very light pitting, otherwise nice and smooth. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Tools, Hardware & Locks\Tools\Carpentry, Woodworking\Planes".
