    That's great, how would you describe the outer, darker part? Matt black? Also, do you know if the whole of the platter was the same colour or two tone like yours?

    Maybe dark gray ( gunmetal ?) then wire wool to rub down the central part to blend it to that lighter colour?

    Looking at others photos on the net most seem to have that shading towards the middle.

    i agree with you, I've done a couple of hours searching on the net and all you see is the two-tone variety

    Mine is the same. As far as I can tell it looks like before final finishing the edge of the platter was sprayed. The two tone looks like overspray from not masking the top of the platter. Once sprayed the platter was turned to bring out the strobe indicators and the top edge of the rim.

    They're very dark brown/black rather than grey/black, the 301 does look black.

    Same as anything, the painting did change, I've an early 401 which is smooth, almost 301 enamel, I've had later 401's with fine textured finish.
