Thank you so much for the photos of a little-known piece of Canadian military  and Lee-Enfield history.
I am however, unalterably of the "Restore it" school.
I have deep hatred of corrosion, rot and the other processes which ruin or ultimately destroy priceless artifacts. As this rifle never saw battle and thus has no historical or significant scars, its very existence is what is significant, not any battle stories. I would HAVE to restore it to its new prototype condition. That is how I express my deep respect for such things.
