Default 1952 Ford F1 battery

I was looking in my Ford parts book last night and ran across batteries in the battery section, interesting. It looks like there were three that were offered from Ford for the 52 F1, of varying amps and plates. Looks like two script batteries, one with a gold oval and one with a green oval. And then one power punch battery with red letters.

I checked antique auto battery and they have both the ford script battery and the power punch, but the power punch is only 500 cranking amps vs. the script at 800. The script battery is actually an optimum in a script case. Problem with the script is that the oval is not colored correctly, or at least I do not think it is. Any thoughts on that? Anyone know of an antique battery supplier with the correct color script on the side?

Most people have to paint them themselves....You need to ask those people who have done this to steer you in the right direction as to the paint/color they used....
