    I recently aquired an F-1, but have noticed that the rewind lever isn't black. Was this ever an original config or is this a mod done by a previous owner?

    I have never seen that before. I guess that it is a repair with a none attainable part.

    Does it work ok?

    Look at it this way. You have a unique one off special.
