I never know when you guys are kidding... I ASSUME that you all are 
actually talking about braided cable, copper which has been "tinned"?
Obviously, anything made of copper will take plating easily but i have 
never actually looked at my "silver" braided strap to see how it 
obtained that color.

please edumacate the less worldly on the list please.
