Based upon the picture, it looks like a standard #4 plane. Nothing
special. I'd probably pay $5 or $10 for it.
My personal theory is that a plane that looks nice will probably need as
much work as a plane that looks old, so I won't pay any extra because the
paint is in good condition.

The red painted frog, the tinny adjuster knob, and the Craftsman
label suggest it's a fairly recent vintage, lower quality plane.
If so, older and better quality planes can be had for decent
prices with a little searching. (OTOH, some Sears planes were
made by Millers Falls and are considered good quality...can't
really tell by just one picture).
