If it was bare metal it would rust. It must be plated with something.

Other parts are "Tern" plated.

Most likely cadmium or zinc plating, IMO. I've only seen Terne-plating on sheet metal parts.

The ones I typically see are black like the jack and handle assemblies.

I have an original one and it is natural finish with some rust areas. I blasted it and painted it silver.

White zinc, or the other name is White Cad Plating. Hard to find someone that will do a small part job

Idea;

Find plater.
Unless one is under time constraints,ask them to throw it into another's batch of parts when the time arises? (Kinda like small powdercoat orders when someone else wants the same powder).

Thoughts?
