I was in the camera repair having them check out a lens for me and I saw the shiniest camera on the shelf behind the owner. No kidding...there was an incredibly glossy silver-gold K1000. I asked Mike (the owner) what the story was. He said that one of the other guys in the shop had simply polished off the normal powder coat mat silver finish and that was what was underneath. The next time I am in there I am going to have to grab a shot to share here!

is should be satin chrome over brass. so unless the brass was polished, it should be mat and somewhat tarnished.
