Here is another issue to always keep in mind. I've two original brass grills. Both were stripped of chrome, annealed, repaired, polished, and copper plated. I stopped there. The reason being that they need to be fitted to the nose of my car, (original, neverdamaged with original paint). Cars that have been damaged will not accept correct fit of an original grill. It must be fitted to the nose contour. I felt if I ever sold one of my restored grills, the owner should fit it before nickle and chrome plating. A new brass grill can be "sprung" a bit for correct fit on a repaired car, the later steel version is a harder fit.
Obviously, a factory OEM brass grill fits a factory nose perfectly. It could be sprung a bit to fit repaired noses.
Just my opinion from my experience as usual.
