40AL paint

(1/1)

JimNY:
I recently acquired a pretty nice 40AL. The bower-barf finish is very nice and the 'matching' paint on the switch hook and perch is in tact. The transmitter cup and faceplate are black. Is this typical or would it have matched the gray appearance of the phone overall? The paint on the transmitter was rough so it's already been stripped.  Just curious as to what the 'correct' color should be.

Thanks.
