What good does gold plating do at HF frequencies?

Matter-of-fact, what good does silver plating tank components
do at HF frequencies?

I looked at the photo, in close-up, of the Omega.

The air-variable capacitor stator support shaft
is bent, coming downwards in the middle of
the capacitor.

The vertical RFC near the air-variable looks to have
a relay contact on its top.  The relay looks like an
open-frame variety redolent of the Magnacraft
High Voltage tap-changer on the '77 series.

Would not a Kilovac H-8, or similar, be more
apropos to a "state-of-the-art" design? 

I guess that when the white smoke escaped
during the hamfest the magic went with it. 
Good choice of moniker: Omega....
