Bathroom remodel - waterproofing the mirror


I'm currently in the middle of a bathroom remodel and found a great second-hand mirror that I would like to use. do I need to worry about waterproofing the back of the mirror?

The mirror that we took down had been there for over 40 years and it was turning black around the edges (and some spots in the middle). I figured it was because of the humidity, and I didn't want it to happen again. Also, that mirror was stuck to the wall with construction adhesive, and my new (old) mirror will be hung on the wall kinda like a painting (with a frame and such).

Most likely the old silver coating on the back side of the mirror was just failing.

Mirrors actually cost more with that missing silver or blacks spots. People have been known to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars, for mirrors like yours that you just took down.
