Tip for Auction: Handling coins and stamps

Michael Rosenberg, Coin and Stamp Specialist:

I completely agree with Harry (see previous Tip for Auction post) and apply this rule to coins and stamps.  Also, when you are dealing with proof coins, make sure to use gloves when handling them; never touch them with your bare hands or you risk leaving spots.  I also highly recommend using tweezers when handling mint, unhinged stamps.
