    looking at a #5 Stanley, that has red japanning, wondering if this is original or maybe someone refinished it this way. It’s more of a dark red/brick red color.

      Not a Stanley Color

      Stanley never produced Bailey hand planes with red japanning. They had a low cost line that was produced in multiple colors. The Four Square line was the most colorful. The colors were enamel, not japanning.
