Very rare find as the vast majority of these XR7-G steering wheel emblems were gold plated. This is very different from the run of the mill used emblems we have all seen with the brass electro plating worn off. I have owned two XR7-G Cougars with this version of emblem installed and others have reported finding the same version on their original XR7-G's. The burnished version was apparently done first: Ford part number S8WS-3849-A and the much more common gold version done second which carries a Ford / Shelby part number of S8WS-3849-B.
