Im glad you used the term 'refurb' rather than 'restore'. Far too often I see something posted as 'restored' and is certainly not, but does qualify as refurbed. For instance, a higher quality polish and bluing than original is not correct. It will be a lot less expensive to refurb though still nice to use the correct bits, and research/consider carefully whatever you do to something that may well be a true collectable! You see this often on Antiques Roadshow where an item is worth 1/3 'refinished' from what it would have been original.
