My 1926 Original has grey connecting strips - I can't say if it is just dull nickel plate or paint, but I suspect it is plating of some sort. My 1915 Blue Racer type has the same.

As I was looking over my restoration project, a question came to mind.
I have seen these strips both nickel plated brass and just plain brass.
As I wish this restoration to be as true as I can make it, what is/were the
rules regarding the conductive strips. I have seen them both ways over
various vintages. Anybody know the criteria that determined which type
Thank you for your time.
