    Don't think you'll see it.
    Covers can be raw, but bridges are ZAMAC, and have to be plated. Part of the "shiney" is built into plating preparation.

    Agreed^^^. There are pup covers out there labeled "raw nickel" but they are really silver/nickle allow and they oxidize easily. You can age your shiny nickel by exposing it to vinegar fumes....a little at a time until you get what your looking for... :fingersx:
