I always was wondering of actual color scheme, markings and national insignia colors that operational Dyna-Soar would use.
I suspect U.S. AIR FORCE would be used instead of USAF (more often seen al latest Dyna artist's impressions, simplified white-on-black national insignia (interesting that full-scale mockup didn't have it at all)...just on left wing (?)...hardly doubt also that NASA on yellow stripe would stay as well as Boeing lettering on vertical control surfaces.

Any suggestions or factoids on the subject?

There would be miminal markings. The reason why it was overall black in color was to aid in heat rejection through radiation; any paint on the surface would inhibit emissivity at that spot, and would result in a hot-spot and potential damage. It may have used paint - if it used any paint at all - that would burn off very easily, so that when it landed is was back to bare black.
