Harmonica Instrument

Is the tarnish on a turn-of the century brass bed hazardous to repeatedly touch??

I seem to remember something about people getting metal poisoning from handling tarnished metal. O know bethoven died from lead absorbed through his fingertips from playing a leaded glass instrument. Isn't there some hazardous material in the tarnish on brass??

Brass is a mixture of copper and zinc - neither poisonous
Tarnish is just oxidation of brass - still not poisonous

Lead is poisonus - it may have come from the lead crystal Harmonica instrument back then. Glass made with lead can leach some lead into the body on contact.
The Harmonica was several (or more) lead glass crystal disks spinning in water. The player rubs his finger on the edge of a disk and a (musical) note is produced. Play the Harmonica for months ... years, the lead from the glass can get into the body.
