It might very well be all original. Different makers would make tools for Shipleigh Hardware, and then were sold as Keen Kutter Tools. About like Craftsman is today. Base and frog look like Stanley style parts for their “off-brand” planes. If you can, check the threads of the bolts, they might be Stanley bolts. No biggie, I have a KK7, with a UNION frog on it, and a DE6 ( Diamond Edge was another of their lines) had a Union frog. Maybe certain years, Union made them, other years, Stanley did.
