    The Mp3tag filter expression %_tag% HAS "id3v1" finds all files that contain ID3v1 tags.

    Here's what I ended up doing to batch remove ID3v1 tags (basically the suggestions recommended in this thread)...

    Mp3tag: Batch Remove ID3v1 Tags On Networked Drive (from a Mac)

    Mp3tag: Useful Filtering Expressions

    Ended up doing the suggested Cmd-O in Mp3tag, selecting top level SMB networked/mapped folder containing all music files, waiting about 10 minutes for the ~15K files to load (very slow even over 1 Gbps network to NAS), filtering out the ID3v1 tagged files with %_tag% HAS “id3v1”, and doing a Cmd-X, Cmd-V (Cut/Paste) on all filtered MP3’s. The Mp3tag options/preferences need to be set so that ID3v1/ID3v2 are both read, but only ID3v2 are written.
    Thanks for all the suggestions! ID3v1 tags begone!
