    Part 2 glove: some non-brass rivets?

    Hi all
    I am no expert here, but by looking at some shots of the part 2 glove, it seems that 2 rivets are not made out of brass (greyish color, perhaps nickel? steel? silver?): bottom and ring finger stall connection rivets of the backplate.
    Or just lighting effect? (though it can be seen on many shots)

    Those are brass rivets without a doubt. All the rivets are aged and older than the new big size rivets on the middle and pinky knuckle. The one on the bed i believe the glove just came out from a furnace so it could be dirtied up by the ashes. But i believe all are brass. Some aging process could turned brass to greyish color

    Pretty sure I read that some of the rivets were tin, on the part 2 for some of the shooting. Also something about a screw for the middle finger at some point. That glove has seen a lot lot. Brass can get discolored but I don't think it can get that color.

    that screw rivet is what Travis Cowsill started on his old Part 2's back in the day, so no, there was no screw rivet. The rest of the reverts though, the Pinkie isn't the same as the ones on the middle and index stall and tip joint
