    I am incredibly new at this but I am using those blue non-latex gloves, only because I’m allergic to latex, but another user suggested I use cotton gloves which will be much more comfortable and warmer! I know they have them at walmart and they are very thin so you can feel the coin like you can with the other gloves. Just a suggestion. Great people on CT!

    Remember...all coins/ hammered or milled started off as FDC:cigar:
    Reason most are in lesser grades today was caused by handling/ also known as circulation for legal tender. There are many modern "proofs" that are graded as "impaired" due to touching them with exposed fingers:(

    Do you always have to wear gloves while holding gold/silver coins? If not when would you have to?

    oooooohh! That dealer doesn't deserve to be a coin dealer! Put a negative mark on Yelp so that others won't go thru what you just went thru !
