. Or was material brass and electroplated with a chemical ? Or is it chrome or nickel finish ? I am talking about top part which portholes etc. belongs .
I don't know for sure, but I would suppose that the Leica top plates of that time were made of brass, and chrome or nickel plated. EDIT: after reading the preceding post, that appears to simply be a 3-stage chrome plating process. Color of the finish will be different than with direct chrome-on-brass plating, because of the layer of nickel beneath the chrome.

I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
