Mine is 113 853 601 B PuC. I don't see a trace of paint in the grove.
It was on the car when I bought it.

Here's one with paint in the grove. He says it's a 311 #

And this one. Interesting that the number he gives (311 853 601)

And lastly this dead ringer for mine and his has traces of paint in the grove.

So ... if I decide to paint the grove ... black?
