Rusted steel reeds frames and tongues

Would it be worth getting it re-reeded, or would it be best just to bin it and go straight to brass or aluminium shoes?

I think the instrument deserves a chance, so I am intending to rebuild it. All the pieces are there, if I can remove the rusted screws from the ends!

 

I believe some of the reeds can be saved so I intend to reuse them if possible, but I will need to find a number of replacements, brass this time!

I didn't mean bin the whole instrument, just the reeds, - but I can see how my post wasn't clear on that.
