Feeling kind of silly for asking this but is the silver hardware used on bags genuine silver?

It's coated I believe. If you wonder about plating loss it does but depends on how you maintain your bags.

^ Oh thats interesting! I didn't know that!

I know that the older stamped gold hardware means that there is gold plating however, the newer gold hardware now does not have the stamp meaning they don't use the gold plating anymore. So I wonder if this has also affected the silver hardware?
