I would keep it as is. Maybe try to repair the scratch, but the rest of it looks good. It's only original once.

It looks like a wire handrail version from the holes for the wire attachments. That makes it 1948 in the darker blue. Based on the pictures and the quality of the lettering I would keep it original were it mine.
