How do you handle your coins?

| Vailen

When handling your coins, do you use any protection? For example:(1) Cotton gloves(2) Latex gloves(3) "Finger" cotton glovesI have read on forums that some people do not use any gloves at all.

Any recommendations? Thanks.

I have been collecting coins on and off ever since.
