More brass to get snobby about, but I wonder if the latches on the turtle deck weren't painted originally. Anyone ?

If recollection serves, we talked about this in a thread a few years ago. Someone thought the evidence was that they were painted, but I don't recall the specifics.

I believe they were painted. They were steel on my 13.

Well these repro's are a steel handle with brass face plate: http://modeltford.com/item/9485ala.aspx
Royces says "The handles were the same on runabouts from 1913 - 1918. The reproductions are brass, originals are cast iron" in this tread:

Mine have a steel handle painted black, the base is formed sheet brass. Sorry, I meant to post the pic with the question, forgot to attach it.
