Can anyone recommend a source for reasonably priced "playing" gloves -and what material would you recommend? I have always had a terrible time maintaining the finish on horns. One touch and silverplate or lacquer is gone, and raw brass turns within minutes of touching.
I have recently acquired a vintage 46 Olds Super in raw brass. Today I bought another gold plated vintage Super (53). I would like to find a way of handling the horns and was thinking white gloves might work. I did order a cheap pair of cotton gloves advertised for coin handling-but they were so thin that you could see your skin through them-they went straight into the garbage.
I'm sure others have the same problem. Still, now that I have begun a vintage collection for playing and collecting, I would appreciate ideas you might have.
Thanks in advance,
