Craftsman Block plane 1950's

I picked up a hand plane (Craftsman #3732) and went on line to get some history on it.  I get different stories about it.  Some folks who posted thought this plane was made by a couple of different companies but sold and labeled by Craftsman.  So, how do I know what company made it?  Any thoughts?  Thanks all

I had a somewhat newer (late 60's) #4 C'man plane and tried to get that info, with absolutely no luck. I hope someone comes up with something for you...

Can you post some pics of it....there might be some subtle features that indicate one manufacturer or another.
