What do you guys use for bare copper to prevent tarnish? In many cases it doesn’t matter if it tarnished but I’ve got a Miss-o with a playfield copper press-plate and I would like it to stay good.

Doing some research it looks like lacquer or everbrite but what about things like contacts that need electrical contact?

You can polish and clear coat but it will eventually tarnish again.
Tarnish does not reduce electrical performance(conductivity).
