    Do these badges look correct?

    I am going to mate these with a pair of C38 cabinets I picked up via AK's pony express. These have no pin and I immediately thought repo's but I figure for a modified pair of speakers (still have mostly JBL in them ), what the heck. Complete the illusion.

    I don't remember the JBL badges having black filling during the time we used them.

    I had an original pair, and yours LOOK correct, but I'd bet money that they are
    repros...originals are always pitted , they don't age well.
    So we cheated and we lied and we tested,
    and we never failed to fail, it was the easiest thing to do

    The rectangular logos (black and silver) had black fill, but I don't remember those pictured above as ever having black fill - at least, not during the 50's and 60's.

    can't remember for sure, but mine may have been copper (or brass ??)

    I suspect it's the reproducer's attempt to mimic the tarnish that appeared on the original ones in those spots that weren't machined.
