Silver-It

Probably the biggest design mistake Radio Shack made with the TRS‑80 Model I was their decision to use solder-coated tin contacts (instead of silver or gold) on the Model I and Expansion Interface connectors.

The usual solution was periodically to use a pink rubber eraser to remove the oxidation.
