Default VH grade trigger finish

How where the triggers and trigger guards finished on VH grades when they left the factory? Thanks for any help.

Not all triggers were nitre blued

VH triggers and trigger guards were nitre blued.

DH and higher triggers were nickel plated except AAH and higher were normally gold plated.

Forgive me Dave. I read too quickly and thought you were asking about trigger Guards.

What Dean said is correct about triggers. Grades below D were blued.

That can't be right!! Bachelders finished the triggers on my 1930 vintage 20-gauge VH-Grade bright.

I read in Parker Story that triggers were fire blued.
