Those Schnoor washers are technically one-time-use anyway, and were probably black to start with.

They were plated that way...It seems that the acid they use to prep them ate them in half!
Then they plated them right along with everything else. Anyway, I spoke with them about it and they made good on it so it's OK. I would just suggest that if you have something irreplaceable and OLD you may want to think twice about the process in general! Just thought that may help someone else along the way...
