I don't know what went on and don't really care.
The easiest way to remove the plating on most nuts and bolts is to use a propane torch. As you heat the bolt you'll see the plating oxidize away. Then salt water or vinegar for a while and the bolt will be nicely rusted.
Use the right tool for the job.

Remember that when we have the "BIG ONE" everything east of the Rockies falls into the ocean.
