I did actually do some shopping on it today! The patina is good on this one. It's gone matt, and the colour has darkened unevenly. I've touched up the missing parts of the varnish-fix transfers, and then heavily waxed it for protection. The slow decay that caused the patina had been halted. It should still look exactly like this in another forty four years' time.

the varnish fix decals make the patina worthwhile :) some of them are so fragile though , that they do need either lacquer or a good wax to keep them in place.
