I can’t see how rust would be good on any plane, I think one should work to remove rust regardless of it’s collect-ability. I mean carefully of course, not w/ a grinder. It seems to me that rust pitting will de-value a plane more than anything. If you buy a hundred year old plane and remove the rust, it will still be valuable a hundred years from now. If you leave it to rust, it may have no value in another hundred years.
