JRR Tolkien's two, very different, "silver-handed" characters

Another silver-handed character, but not from Tolkien... 
"Wormtail" from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling

A note on a striking but contrasting re-use of the given-nickname "silver-handed", with resonances spanning across some thirty years of Tolkien's writing life.
