    I guess the Schaller reissues that I saw must have been plastic, but a good molding job. I always look for the mold-parting-line along the edge and the metal knobs don't have one, whereas the molded buttons do.

    Looks like they are there from day 1...looking at the front photo the ferrules are also nickle,so correct for the Race and Olmstead tuners,I don't see any signs of replacement tuners having being fitted...must still have had a few around the factory...
