Should the radiator trim tag be the natural metal color or painted black? Any advice would be appreciated.

Painted black, it was attached (solderd) to the radiator at the same time the tanks were soldered to the core section. The whole thing was painted at one time.

The pic on the right of the "rusted" tag looks like a reproduction tag to me that was "aged" to look old.
You can tell by the fonts its a repro. The one on the left is real and looks to be bead blasted.
Compare the 2 and you will see.
These would have been painted as they were attached like Kurt mentions above.

Just came across another with an unpainted tag. I find it hard to believe anyone would have a painted tag, tag it off, strip it and then put it back unpainted and expect it not to be questioned on these "all original'l cars, but I guess they did. I will just paint mine also. Thanks.

Look at the tank brackets they were black but now just as rusty as that tag. Tag had light paint has probably just rusted over the years
