I suppose there aren't many completely new unused 100+ year old planes around, assuming it's not a fake.

I think that particular nickel plated version is dated 1900-1920.

OK, it's a mass produced tool, probably tens of thousands and more were made but I still think it should remain unused as a display tool. Maybe even Stanley bought it.

The box and the "as new" condition add a huge amount to the value for collectors. I have no guess but very used versions with no box come up on ebay for a hundred of your pounds.

It goes without saying, but do not use it, don't even sharpen the blade. The collectors can be willing to pay extra for factory fresh condition.

Good luck with your search for the right person - they will pay you well for such a plane.
