Steering Box Finish

How is the top steering box plate supposed to look? The ones on both my cars are natural.

Most often they are seen natural. Ford hand brushed black paint on top ( I guess so it would not stand out) but it did not stick very well and has disappeared on most cars.

I am not saying that every car got it blacked out. I would not deduct either way.
