mango wood


hi folks, i have a table made of mango wood, hand planned etc. when we purchased this 14 yrs ago, it came sealed. we have covered it with plastic and tablecloth and it still looks as good as the day we bought it. now we are going to remove the plastic. should we re seal the table and if so with what.
ps i have experience with sealing and finishing. but want to ask the everyday finishers. (pro finishers).

thanks

Do you know what kind of finish is on there now? Polyurethane? Varnish? Lacquer? Wax?

If it still looks like new why do anything to it?
I'd never head of Mango before, had to look that one up.
