If it has the Stanley Tools decal on the handle, it’s a late type 13, type 14, or early type 15…1925-1932 range. There should be a patent date in front of the rear tote handle….APR-19-10 if it’s type 13 or 14. If it has a raised ring cast around the front knob, it’s type 14 or newer. If there is no patent date cast into the body behind the frong, it’s type 15. Also, if it’s type 15 the Stanley logo embossed on the lever cap will have an orange background.

Here’s a body from a type 14 with the raised ring and the patent date:

Here’s the front of my type 13 with no raised ring, and no orange in the lever cap:
