Carb Backing Plate

Can someone please tell the correct finish for the carb backing plate for my 65 FLH? Figure it can only be either cad or parkerized. I can't tell from look at the plate. Same backing plate on it since I have owned it (1970).

Do you have a Linkert? There is no backing plate on my '65.
