I acquired a very nice Seth Thomas adamantine mantel clock. The movement needs cleaning and service, but seems to be in fine shape. I would like to better preserve the original label on the back (see photos). Would it hurt the value to seal over the label with a coat of clear acrylic to better preserve the label? Anyone have any other suggections? I also planned to put a natural oil seal (tung oil) on the exposed wood to reduce further drying.
