It has all the original packing paper wrap and box with, what appears to be, the original grease/oil on it.
Nope, I'd leave it just as it is now. I unwrapped my #4mk1 SMLE and degraded the value by 40% according to SMLE collectors.

Now I did take the #4mk1 along on many range trips and shot hundreds of rounds. When I sold it I got what I had originally paid for it 12 years previous.
