The 40 isn't that rare a gun. Among the military Daisy's the 140 is more difficult to find.
If you open it up to the whole line of Daisys there are many other rarer more desirable guns.

I sold a 140 recently for 65 bucks. It had the sling and the ammo box cover in the stock. It was far from mint but it was a good shooter.

More collectables from the same pick a daisy site as the beater 40 is from (using the term 'collectable' rather casually. There are a few nice guns but the bulk of what I saw were not "museum quality", more like middle of the road eBay type fodder for the most part) https://pickingadaisy.com/
 
I shouldn't talk disparagingly about someone's collection but when they list something like that 40  for $3K, you have kind of left yourself open for critical review.

Wow!!  Amazing.  He really should have let it alone, but it's too late now.

Maybe some uninformed buyer will show up.

Never hurts to ask, does it?

It has been completely messed with. The most valuable parts (original sling and bayonet) are repops. Jeepers!

All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.
