    Thanks to both of you. My leaky one was rubber, with vanes but had a lid which just fitted with a flange, so any shot getting in under the lip immediately opened the sluices.

    does gold tarnish

    Does anyone have any authoritative info on whether gold (various carats) tarnishes, and if so, how?
