paint on cedar chest hardward

I have an old cedar chest that someone long ago painted hospital green to match the interior of their house. I have been studying how to strip the paint from the wood, but the hardware (corner pieces and non-working latch) is also painted over. Should I use the same paint stripper that I use on the wood on the metal? Does the hardware have to be removed from the chest for the process? I don't think I can remove the hardware without causing damage to the chest. In places where the paint is scratched off, the metal shows through and looks like copper.
