Keep in mind, Sargent type study is a confusing work in progress. Please email me your example and expect things to change from time to time.  All dates are from Dave Heckel’s book unless otherwise stated.

I’m going to call this one a type 7 #408 1942-1950

  • Its got a type 5 cutter  (1942-1950)
  • A type 5 cap.                ((1942-1950)
  • two piece yoke
  • A mahogany knob and tote.
  • Plane number not on bed
  • Steel knob and tote nuts
  • Steel Adjuster knob
  • “Made in USA”t stamped behind frog

Type 5 cap

Note the difference in the base from the type 6.

Here is the type 6 and type 7 side by side. The type 7 is on the left.

Note the type 7 is 1/2” longer.

And yet another example. The frog and lever cap put this #418 in the same era, but as you can see, its a different base.
