Instead of buying a shell at the Pilgrim's office or some tourist shop, I'm taking along a shell that I found at my mother's house. Given that shells aren't that sturdy and they'll be banging around the back of packs and lodged against walls for over a month, would it be helpful to protect the shell by putting on a coat or two of lacquer, polyurethane, or shellack (assuming they'll stick to calcium carbonate shells)? I'd prefer to return my mother's shell intact if at all possible to add to her collection. Thanks in advance for any advice!
