Given the condition I am assuming it is an original Green version.
I will know much more when I can examine in-person.
It is being mailed this week.

This will be a VERY detailed restoration!!

In the rear view it would appear the battery cable is not present. and it doesn't have the binding posts for battery connection.

I would think in the manufacturing process AK could find switching from the green paint to brown or black would speed up the process of manufacturing scimitar to Ford who switched to all black in 1915. Radios were selling like hotcakes and I would not think color of parts would have that much effect on selling.

We the crazy collectors like lots of brass and green paint, and hate the battery cord, anything unusual and looking older.

I agree Jim, I am looking forward to a much closer examination. This appears to be an early model variant and possibly had blended parts.
