The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Not a standard offering of the EH Scott Radio Laboratories but they would accommodate requests. Nevertheless I seriously doubt that the EH Scott Radio Laboratories provided a brass faceplate.
If you are referring to the dial and control escutcheons, no, they were not shiny.
Thank you, Norman
For one of my AW-15s, the escutcheons are the correct version and labeling, but are bright gold like seen of the AW-27. The escutcheons were on a cabinet I acquired from an estate collection at a radio club meet. Are metal plated, not painted. One is embossed VOLUME. The other STATIC. Moved them to my Napier.
I have an AW-23, in the Waverly cabinet. It has a factory installed tuning eye, with the obviously Scott cord, from the eye, going to the 76 tuning indicator amplifier tube's socket. All its escutcheons are a matte gold color. It's the only one I've ever heard of like it.
