If it's been transferred already and those who own it are satisfied with the transfer, why not just 
encase it in clear epoxy plastic resin or even in low-temperature glass? Put it in resin, then 
encase the resin in air-tight glass (plastic does leach oxygen over time) and it should be good to 
go for the foreseeable.
