This one sold quickly.  Doesn't look painted.

Wow, that was a great deal.  Banjos in color are very uncommon.  The only other green one Iíve seen is in Dennis Markhamís collection.  The seller left several hundred on the table there for sure....

It's interesting to see how the ITT/Kellogg coil cord just doesn't match well. No wonder WE's version came with dark gray cords. They were still working on getting cords to match in those early days. It took them until 1957 for green.

Someone got a good deal, but now that I finally found the auction, it did have a repaired crack in the back. Here is the auction link...

My guess, PAINTED.
Why ? Look at the third photo, left of the yellow label. Also that is a metallic looking green. Not a normal color.

Definitely NOT painted!  You CANNOT paint a bi-colored number ring; it MUST be injection-molded in the opposing colors that way.

The brightness of the color is very deceiving, it appears too metallic. After looking maybe it is original, did anyone here buy it ?
Also some early version  phones had back painted number plates.
