Aurigan is a Sprenger tradename. There are other makers using a similar alloy but they can't use the name (eg. Argentan is another one).
Tackcollector, I think you'll find 'Never Rust' is solid nickel. We used to find it stamped particularly on stirrup irons or flat bit rings.
And I wouldn't have thought you'd find a nickel mouthpiece with stainless steel rings - one selling point when SS began to take over from nickel was the latter could cause irritation to a horse's mouth (to be fair it seems some horses are 'allergic'). And nickel only took over from mild steel (much more horse friendly) because it was far easier to polish.
Oops, sorry...kind-of ended up a history lesson
