question for you electrical guys

I bought this resetting breaker for the headlight really mod and noticed it had one copper pole and one chrome plated. My question is Why? Is there a certain orientation, "copper pole to load" maybe?

Thanks for the help

I don't know if it matters to the operation of the breaker, but looking at a few dozen of these on Google Images, it seems the brass post goes to Battery and the silver post goes to Auxiliary.

I was told in the past that orientation of those breakers does matter and yes, the copper post goes to battery.
