Sargent No.3 size plane 408 VBM

Up for auction is a nice old Sargent 408. As you can see from the photos, it's not far from being a good user plane, or more. The Japaning is mostly intact, the tote and knob are whole fairly well covered in their finish, and the sole is nicely machined with no pitting. Rust stains, or what I think are rust stains, can be seen on the wings and sole, cap iron and lever cap, but those could be removed with a little elbow grease.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this plane, and thanks for looking.
