I noticed that my 1913 touring the door latch handles have traces of what appears to be brass plating on them. Has anyone else noticed this on their 1913? Not sure if it shows up well in the picture, it appears to be mostly worn off.

No evidence of this on my 1913 touring. All 3 latches have black paint on them. Most if the original brass plating on surviving early unrestored T's is gone. It did not survive time well. Sometimes you can see it down in the corners of parts that were plated or on early speedometer parts where the plating was protected.
