Stanley Trademark Stamps


The following reference guide provides examples of Stanley’s trademark stamps from 1872 to the present. It is by no means comprehensive or complete.  As with type studies, overlaps may be observed, but this covers the main trademarks and approximate dates of use. There were often variations used on block planes and other tools. Generally, the same marks were used on all Stanley tools being produced at the time.

I'm not an appraiser and I no longer provide estimates of value. So, if you have a plane you'd like to sell me please bring along a price with your offer. Thanks.
