Is the black crescent at the front of this this a/c part of the livery?

No, it's the shadow of a light pole (off-camera to the left) falling across the front fuselage of the plane.

Yes, the sun was very low, but if you wait much later it goes behind the angle and is no good, plus I had a very narrow window, arranged with the airline and the manufacturer.

I have also got some mail wondering why I nicked the horizontal stab...well there was a pole in the way, you can see the lights in the top left corner. 17mm was as wide as I could go without any poles in the way. All and all a tough shot.

Glad you were able to make it happen with the tough lighting. Capturing aviation history can be tough having to use the timing and conditions at hand. Glad the photographer on Kill Devil Hill was able to do the same 102 years ago.
