    Default Argentine Silver (RE: Wes)

    Argentine silver is another name for nickel silver, a nickel alloy that shines up beautifully, wears like iron and contains absolutely NO silver whatsoever.
    Other names for the same material include Silverode, Silveroid, Silverene, Alaska Silver and probably a lot of others.

    Thanks Ed!

    I thought it was another term for the nickel based cases, but wanted to be sure.
