The orange “paint” would be the Glyptol, that was used as a coating on all cast parts. Keep it on.

To me, the orange looks more like actual orange paint than cheap red that is faded. Some is showing on the rockshaft which is not a cast part. Maybe it was a highway mower or something else that called for orange paint. The relevant question is the color of the bottom layer.
