Default Serck Radiator Tag Questions

Craig will be adding my brass Serck London radiator tag to my radiator next week and I have a couple of questions. On some marques, the radiator tag had numbers stamped on them. Did the original Cobras have numbers stamped on them? Also, I am assuming the tag was added to the radiator before the black finish was applied. I am trying to confirm that the tag should be black and not brass.

Thanks Jeff, great picture.
Do you know what the stamped numbers represent?

That part I do not know....
I am looking for my 3020 tag pic to compare 18 and 20
Of course the radiators were probably changed over time.
Fun to compare

The tag should be painted black like the rest of the radiator, confirmed by my pics of 3346. The numbers on that tag are L8972 and a large 9, best I can tell.
3240ís tag is also painted black with large 84 and xx465 for the. Smaller numbers. I canít read the first two on the photo I have.

CSX3020 thanks George
Jim is also correct, guessing the numbering system was a little random. Dunno

Does anyone know where you can buy new Serck radiator tags? I'd like to add one to my Kirkham cobra.
