Depends on what you want for the octant.
If you want to sell it as an antique, then leaving it 'as is' would be the most appropriate course.
If you want to use it, then repairing it will likely destroy the antique value. It would permit you to have fun with it.
But that's just common sense.
Is this octant worthy of repair? Who? Found in homestead of New Bedford whaler.
