Solid brass does tarnish. Some people like the look of tarnished brass better than polished brass...To each his own. While your dog is wearing a solid brass ID Tag, depending how active he is, he is constantly rubbing it on his coat and other obstacles. This alone will usually keep the ID Tag in a polished brass state. However, if your dog is not wearing his ID Tag for extended periods, it may tend to tarnish from the elements - humidity, etc. depending on wear and how it is stored.
If your dog's ID Tag does happen to develop some tarnish, not to worry...Lightly polishing it with a standard brass polish will bring it back to a like-new state in just a few seconds.
