"Nickel silver, (also known as Maillechort, German silver, Argentan, new silver, nickel brass, albata, alpacca) is a ternary alloy composed of zinc, copper and nickel, with a color and shine similar to those of silver. Alloys containing more than 60% copper are single-phase and are characterized by their ductility and the ease of being worked at room temperature; the addition of nickel gives them good resistance to corrosive media. This alloy was invented by the French Maillot and Chorier in 1819, which is why in France it became known as a Maillechort. His goal was to imitate silver for table service, especially cutlery. Its applications include the manufacture of religious images, tableware, light bulbs (sorbet), zippers, costume jewelery, keys to musical instruments (for example, the oboe), guitar frets, track rails. for railway modeling, radio dials, coins, dental and surgical instruments, and rheostats."
