Cheap A4 grade fasteners

I just found an ebay store selling A4 Stainless fasteners at what looks like a good price.

I've bought 200 mixed flat washers (always useful). If anyone's interested in the quality I'm going to dunk one in brine and then leave it on my galvanised worktop in the garage to dry to see how they fare.

Update:-

Looks like they are OK.

One of the m10 washers has had a length of mild steel wire wrapped around it and left on a warm windowsill in very salty water for 4 days.

The wire is rusty,the water has started to go brown with rust,the jar it's in is stained with rust and the washer still looks like new.
