Antiques with non-matching numbers- worth it?

There's a few antiques that I keep my eye out for, Snyder-Enfield, Burnside carbines, Gras and Lebel rifles in 8mm Lebel. The ones with matching numbers usually look beat up, but the ones with non-matching numbers look good and are priced well too.

So, what's the rub with antiques that have numbers that don't match? Are they ever worth considering if you're looking to shoot them and not just collect them for some sort of investment?
