i believe that regular zinc plated material is plated silver, I think this is the case here too.

Ideas?

..from what I have heard called "flash chrome" plating. Either way, the corrosion and wear protection is excellent. Both are done with the use of toxic metals & chemicals and are therefore no longer common except in industries where specified (also costly). The yellow colored plating as well as black oxide is what I find when purchasing hard/automotive grade hardware. If corrosion protection is important and you can get get by with a little less tensil strength, use 18-8 Stainless Steel (type 316 is not as tough). Heat treated alloy steel is often twice the tensil strength of stainless steel, but I use stainless steel on suspension components and elsewhere.

..oxide coated alloy steel, and some stainless steel. However, the automotive grade hardware that I purchased from my local Ace was yellow coated.
