Needs a little bit finessing yet, camber the edges and there’s a very very slight low spot in the middle 

Is the a bevel up jack plane?  I inherited a few old planes and I think they are smoothing planes and jack planes. Have not used them just but keeping them for when the time is right.

It is a low angle jack plane that I recently bought brand new.  I have a couple of older planes that haven't seen or been touched for about 20+ years that I'd like to bring back into a working state.  However, I wasn't sure how a good plane was supposed to work so now I have a pretty good benchmark to hopefully get them up to snuff.
