Molex never made a "brass plated” tin connector.
https://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0008050302_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml

They’re a brass body, plated nickel for the wire termination, and gold at the mating surface. I believe molex did make a nickel plate all over version, but the ones that Mike sells at not those.

I have some from Mike, and they’re definitely gold plated at the mating surface.

There’s a reason many those arcade pins are cheap. They are simply brass plated tin (which is probably fine for some wires, but not for others). …the “real” pins are gold flashed (and silver), and as you noted discontinued long ago. Those of us who have some left do charge a lot, but that’s because they just don’t exist at the OEM level anymore. Whenever you see a solid silver or solid gold looking pin, be aware they aren’t what you think they are.

Cheers,
Stein

Well, apart from the eBay merchants at $1/pin, that is....

The pins were discontinued by molex about a decade ago, but this guy still has stock. He’s probably the only supplier in the world, now.

Can someone help me find a source for replacement pins for a KT76A transponder connector. I'm not sure of the name of that connector, but it is a 24-pin molded plastic unit, with two rows of 12 pins, and the pins are not cylindrical but flat.

If someone has a digikey or mouser part number that would be fantastic!
