20 year old JD 826: did someone swap out the bucket?

About a 20+ year old Ariens made John Deere blower on a just released Boston area Craigslist listing. The problem is that this bucket just does not look right - it looks like the bucket from the much smaller Ariens compact series. Did someone swap out the bucket here from a larger 8HP JD chassis to a smaller JD compact series bucket? And then stick an "826" decal on the top of the bucket?

after a quick google image search there appear to be 2 different 826d model types, one being a compact model the other type being a full size 924000 series model

That's the original and correct bucket for a JD 826D.
Some more pics here, scroll down past Cub Cadet and Bolens:

Not two different 826d's, they should all be the same..
There was however a larger 828d and 832d, with the larger Ariens Pro-series bucket:

The easiest way to tell is to look at the chute control. Look and see where my chute control knob, chute control, bucket design is compared to the craigslist ad. Just different years ago
