No, all 1963 A10's were originally +ve earth as they left the factory. If it's negative earth it will be because a PO changed it.

If the bike has been out of use for a longer period, you'll need to flash the dynamo anyway, so + or - earth,  the choice is yours.
If you don't know how, do a search for "dynamo flash" on the forum. Plenty of "how to" there.
