I assume those are Garand clips...looks like they may be in the applcation process for whatever coating it is that they put on them to retard corrosion.

I am guessing they just went through a deburring process, prior to phosphatizing.

Gentlemen,

The answer to the picture above is as follows:

The M1 Garand Clips are being Zinc Coated before the Parkerizing is done.

I hope you had fun.

Thanks again
Clancy
