Decals, leave original or replace ?

Original ducal on Ransome Ajax Mark 4   although some tarnish , is clear so I have painted box but left ducal. Would you lacquer it for protection or  put a new one on , or something else ?

Preserve it without question. There aren't that many original examples around in that condition. A matt varnish or lacquer is the way to go.
