    Default Source of "bright nickel finished" sheet 12" x 24"....

    .050" to .060" thick. Sometimes used by trophy shops/engravers for their best nameplates ...but my local shop's supplier is out of stock for a while. Not sure if the base material is aluminum or steel...either would do for my purpose but prefer steel if given a choice. Just need one sheet.

    The material looks a bit like chrome but not quite as glossy as chrome. No visible brush marks.

    Polished 304 might be usable?

    I would think that the material you are after is actually nickel-silver also called German-silver. One of the C75x alloys of copper/zinc/nickel. It is used in musical instruments and polishes up nicely

    Maybe go to some of the jewelry suppliers like RioGrande.com:

    (Yes, the link say not found, but it is correct)
