The "GOLD" Hartsfield lens are distinctive looking. Can anyone tell me if that coating came from a spray nozzle or was it an anodized coating?

I ended up with three lenses while I was collecting components for the Hartsfield project. I kept the two that were matched and sold the third one to a buyer in Thailand. I did notice that what looked like paint had flaked off on the very edge and the original gold color could be seen. I think I probably got rid of the wrong lens. Oh well!:p

I have a pair of the champagne lenses with the HL-89 horns that I would part with. One lens had been "narrowed" by the prior owner, and the other could be matched to it. Horns are in good shape.
