Differences in tone arm length, width, shape etc in vv IXs from early teens to 1921?

Can anyone tell me if there were any differences in length/shape between the thin tone arms of the vv IXs?

Exhibition reproducer lettering removed

When I had one of my exhibition reproducers rebuilt last year it came back with the lettering removed. I would like to paint the letters back on. Has anyone done this? Any pointers on what paint to use/not use? How to proceed?
Thanks

I appreciate the thoughtful responses here on the forum-very grateful. I have read about the “skating” probl...
