Black door brands, ??

Why are some black and other silver-colored door brands, both of these cars are 930 from 78 and from Los Angeles,

I think it has to do with the original color of the car. The perforated numbers have to be seen so a black sticker on a dark car would be difficult, just as a silver car having a silver sticker would be just as difficult.
That being said, is the car in the top photo wearing it's original paint? It looks a little strange around the stickers as if it had a color change.

For reference, my Black '78 has a silver sticker.

Early cars had silver stickers…when you order a replacement from Porsche with your VIN stamped in it, it comes in black. Just my personal experience with my 77 and my 79.
