I couldn't guess why it is in black colour. This feels so weird — usually Nikon lenses letters are engraved in gold or red, but this one in black. Could anyone shed light on this? (This is my friend's DSLR.)

This lens uses embossed lettering for the name plate, so it's probably not filled with black anything, it's just a sticker that's been ripped off of the lens. However, the VR marking also is in black, so I'm going to guess that someone impulsively ripped the badges off of this lens.
