Default Polished or Chromed Door Handles?

Does anyone know what type of metal is under the paint on the door handles?
I am thinking about taking the centers out to polish or chrome plate.

Not looking for the ones that stick on over the top.

pot metal, forget what kind of alloy it is.

not likely to polish out very well, and disassembling it will be a pain.

You can buy self adhesive chrome door handle covers but unsure about the quality and finish.
