Palce numbers don't equate to plane age, type number does to
approximate age. Take a look a www.supertool.com to find out
about plane numbers, among other things. Follow the links or DAGS
on type study to learn about the dating.
Hope that helps,

I don't know about age, but I have a 9 1/2 and also have a 9 1/4 (same as 9
1/2, except fixed throat). Both work well for me, the 9 1/2 for finer work,
the 9 1/4 for coarser work or chamfering.
A #6 (fore bench plane) and a 9 1/2 (block plane) are different species.
