    Looking for some advice on a nice piece in my Pap's attic...never knew he had it. Anyway, it is a Whitney Kennedy all complete and looks great except for what appears like a clear coat varnish on it. I asked one guy and he said it was a techniqued used for a few years back in the 40's to preserve guns. Obviously didn't last long and I am wondering if anybody can verify what might have been done as well as if the stuff can be taken off without ruining the weapon. Thanks much for any help. Shoot on!
