Good information, thank you. I recall reading that many museum conservation advisory panels suggested using powder-free nitrile gloves to handle items, especially paper and photos. I believe the cotton gloves were suspected to harbor chemicals from the sweat in our hands and could either snag frayed or loose pieces and further damage the item. The Canadian site is an excellent resource.
P.S. I like the "Archer" avatar.

Sir, On seeing the wonderful and extensive collection in your care, something akin to a walk-in humidor (if you have ever purchased cigars) .... and set to de-humidify, would be fitting rather than individual cabinets. Regards, paul
Thank you Paul,
I hope to, one day, expand my collection to include more representative examples. I would also hope that I can gain enough knowledge to intelligently discuss this regalia and put it all correctly into context.
