    I was looking at a traditions napolean 3 gold finish 69 cal cannon.
    My question is being that it is gold plated would the fuse/flash hole area show wear .burn off in that area when fired.
    Thanks

    It’s kind of a display piece, I bet the gold plate is pretty thin and would wear off with handeling.
    They used to plate toucholes and flash pans with gold. It’s noble and won’t rust or tarnish. Rubbing off though, it’s not very tough.
