The Polished Nickel finish is nickel plating on brass that is then polished. Nickel is similar to chrome in that they both have silver tones, with nickel having a slightly warmer tone. Polished Nickel may be lacquer coated but typically is not because nickel does not tarnish.
Common finish codes for polished nickel are 014, US14, 618 and PN.
