Sounds like paint.  I have a set of what I think are 68 fins (as opossed to 67 fins) that have a drain like the 68 stacks. I do not have any 67's or Nova's to compair.
   Anybody have knowledge of a differance, or a picture of the bottom of 67 fins?

Do they appear to have silver paint in the area or is it a textured surface?
It also looks as though the matte silver comes all the way to the top on the outside of the stacks, is this correct?

BTW the inner black out in the bottom of the stacks appears to be anodized aluminum in the originals, are the NOS ones the same?

The outside of the stacks are painted matte silver right up to the top of the stacks. The insides are chrome plated. The base around the stacks are also chrome plated. It's difficult to capture in a photo but there is just a very small amount of overspray where the matte silver meets the chrome plating at the base of the stacks.

Hope this answers your questions.

The reproduction Hood stack frames are very nice however the components when inspected with a close eye are off.

In order to make the repros look correct they need to have the areas around the stacks painted silver,
The backers in the originals are Black anodized the repros are black vinyl over aluminum or stainless.
Black anodizing isn't really black it is more of a Deep Purple color.
The wire in the original screens is .040 Aluminum  the Repros use .035 Stainless.

hmmm....never noticed this before. Here's what I have. First pic is nos, 2nd pic is good used. Wether it is original production line or not I can't be sure.
But it certainly is paint, looks like a dull aluminum.
