Ebay Item - What Is It?

Can anyone expound on the claim here of "reeds of brass and steel?"

 

I thought it had to be one or the other.

 

I see two possibilities:

1> The reeds weree originally brass, but some of them have been replaced with th somewhat easier to find steel. I have a couple of very old Wheatstones that came to me with one or two of the original brass reeds replaced with steel ones.

2> The seller hasn't distinguished the brass reed shoe from the steel reed tongue
