Default Eddystone M1917 - request opinions & advice on stock

Greetings all,

An M1917 came my way via Gunbroker (https://www.gunbroker.com/item/811160046) and I had a bit of an unpleasant surprise when looking it over:





Caveat emptor and all that, and who knows if it was damaged in transit, although I find it interesting that the ad photos assiduously avoided that part of the stock......

Now, from a collecting standpoint I don't anticipate doing much in the way of altering/repairing the stock, since it otherwise looks like a pretty nice, dare I say original finish Eddystone:













There are a couple more faint/partial eagle head cartouches elsewhere as well, and I don't see any re-arsenal markings.

Continued in next post for more images...
