antique trunk

I recently purchased a steamer trunk that is over 100 yrs. old. The outside was refinished, but there is a piece that is separating and has green stuff on the polyurathane (could be under it). The inside smells awful, looks like may have had some water damage at one time. There is an original picture on the inside. What would that green stuff be, how can I repair the piece, and what can I do to the inside to be able to use it? I could cover it with paper or fabric, but would I be doing something wrong because and lower the value of it? Whatever the person did to refinish this trunk stinks!!!!! It is very shiney - I like the duller look better. Maybe I should strip it again and start new? Thanks for all your help.
