Is there a difference?
As long as its tanned properly you should have no problems
If you really want to protect the piece you need to use UV glass as it will cut down the harmful rays that will damage it
Plastic, plexiglass, Lexan, and the rest are a royal pain in the ass. They age and when they age, they get fine cracks in them. They are dust magnets and in most cases, regardless of what you use to clean them, you simply moving dirt from one spot to another. Glass is always the best choice for long lasting clarity and ease of cleaning. If your mount is in sunlight, certainly the UV factor would be nice (though you'll find it a bit pricey).
At the glass shop I work in, glass is generally less expensive or the same as Plexiglass and Lexan. George is right. Glass is by far the better choice. It doesn't get brittle, it doesn't change colors when exposed to UV light, it cleans easily and it doesn't scratch as easily.
