Default my new 1903a3

grabbed this from a forum member. a 1943 remington 1903a3 Ogden rebuild. It looks so good i dont think its even been fired since 1945(feed ramp and mag follower look brand new). I bought this as a shooter. I paid at the higher end of what a shooter goes for and am very pleased. My question for all of you. Do you see any collector value in a redone gun in this condition? the stock is sanded, all refinished, parts are all correct except for the bayonete holder (unmarked/i assume smith corona). Barrel is mint. i know if bubba redid this gun it would have little value, but if Ogden did it does it hold some collector value? or is it considered worse than a lower end/beat up 1903 thats all original?

any opinions are appreciated, both neg/pos--i like the truth of what people really think.
