It looks like it might fit a G12-920 but I can’t tell for sure.

Why not return it for exchange or refund?

Hock sells two different sizes of blade for the 9 1/2. You have the version that fits the British version G12-020 as Harry said. I did the same thing as you when I ordered a Hock blade and it didn't fit my old 9 1/2. Rather than return it I bought a G12-020 off of the big auction site and I prefer everything about that plane over the US made version. Those planes can be had for $25-40.
