Is the brass version of this lock set solid or plated?

A home owner from southampton nj 08088 says:
is the brass version of the 40-160 solid brass or just plated - as you have it satin silver it looks like it is just plated over steel? if it is solid brass is the finish a permanent coated one like BALDWIN that won't corrode? confirm this will fit a 1 5/8 screen door, which from your template the holes are already in the correct place.
same questions for 40-058, and can that fit a 1 5/8 screen door? does it come in polished brass?

The 40-160 lever lock sets are not solid, they are only plated. I do not believe they are a permanent finish. The manufacture states that this lock can be used on storm doors up to 2" thick.
