Lots of looking and I can’t seem to figure out what these are. Fairly sure the legs are silver. Some have a metal cylinder between the points.

A magnet won’t tell you anything, since reed switches are magnetically actuated. The ends of the actual reeds where they make contact may be gold or rhodium plated though.

There's a lot of various types I collected over time. Here's couple of photos, just for your reference.

I just recently processed this material. I had 18g of inner contact tips and get about 0,25 g of gold and 0,071g of rhodium flakes. The pile of rhodium looks bulky but weights almost nothing.
