Some of those blue ones you can just paint them black and put in a sharp-
shouldered blade and pass it off for a type 20.  Later blue ones had a folded
lateral lever, so not so much those.  The maroon is a different story - I have
seen made-in-England Stanley bench planes in black with the same casting as the
maroon ones, with the ribs under the tote and a few other changes.
