REALLY dark BA brown? Sun faded black?

Hey Guys! This is my new lease horse, Coal. I am 99% sure he is a BA Brown. People have been calling him black, which urks me. His lighter areas are not in the typical sun fading areas, and he was only turned out 3x per week prior to coming to me.

Anyone else have any photos of super dark BA Browns I can compare him to? He is a AQHA, his owner has his papers so I don't have his parents name. His registered name is Sonnys Hot Leaguer, if anyone wants to do any digging. His papers say black, which is doubt.

Also, just for fun: He has three white scars above both eyes. Any ideas what they could have been from? I like to call them his "steps".

Thanks everyone!

^^^ That's what one mare I boarded with looks like in the summer. When she came last September, I thought she was just faded black until she grew her winter coat. Her nose was as bright as any bay in the barn.

Well, I would call him black at first glance, too. Do not let it irk you, as even I have learned to be patient about the Paint/Pinto......

The marks may been from skinny hood being to tight we had a mare that something similar happened but on got a small one as we noticed it occurring so the hood came off

I missed that question in the OP, but I've seen similar scars from a hood.

Or he scraped it on something like a fence with how even the lines are. Shrug. They look pretty neat though.
