What is the difference (apart from the look) between nickel, silver
and gold plated keywork.

My fingers tend to be a little bit sweaty. Some keys on my nickel
plated B-12 are getting slightly black (already after a few
weeks). Polishing with a cloth helps a little bit, but on one key the
upper layer now seems be deleted.

Will I have less problems with silver plated keys? My teacher is of
the opinion that I also will have problems with silver; gold would be
better according to this problem.

And: Are there quality differences between different, let say: silver

Any opinions? Suggestions to fix the problem? Thanks
