Question for anyone.

Are Powder free Nitrile exam gloves good or bad for handling coins?

There is NO latex in these gloves.

Or is cotton gloves just better?

BTW ... Before I came to CCF ... I was a sinful big thumb print louse

More BTW ... I was just on eBay ... 1 post showed a person THUMBING ASE's

It made me want to jump through my computer ... and do great violence on his THUMB.

Stop playing with your coins. If you need to pick them up just grab them by the edge they will be fine. No need for fancy gloves in my opinion.

Yes, they are fine. I personally use the cotton gloves. Regardless of which you like, handling MS or proof coins without gloves is asking for problems. Why take the chance?

I have used these and cotton gloves as well when handling my MS Morgans and other MS/PF coins. Only thing I can add would be to get a jeweler's mat or something similar for the table to protect against rim dents should you drop the coin. Gloves provide protection but can sometimes limit dexterity and "feel".

If your hands are clean and dry the edge wont do anything.

Or slab a couple and you can handle them to your hearts content with no worries.

If you're the type to use gloves - I'm not - nitrile is fine. It's more about a decent fit which doesn't surrender manual dexterity and tactile sensation than anything else, which is one reason I'm no fan of cotton gloves.

Dave, I do agree the cotton gloves are a bit thick. And the reeded edge on proof coins can snag. BUT, they breathe better than the nitrile gloves do. I may switch over once I use up the cottons I have now as they WOULD be better dexterity wise. And I can pretend I am on the ambulance again. ;) LOL
