Default Coating on Ludwig fot pedals?

I just bought an NOS 1123 Hi Hat stand, mainly to check out original assembly and parts stuff for restoration of others.
They came from a factory with a coating on the foot board to make them shiny. It OBVIOUSLY doesn't last long!
Does anyone know what it is?
I've used some clear polyurethane, with good results. But anything will wear off in time. Maybe there's a better idea out there?

Auto clear coat has occurred to me, but pretty $$. And not for the DIY at home...those fumes will kill you on the spot! (Or else I'd try it!)
