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.
