    I am a big believer in leaving things as found. But in this case the damage has already been done, so a good repaint would not hurt the value or historical integrety. Respray it with a good quality high gloss black enamel paint. Spray it once, then cut the paint back with fine wire wool or emery cloth. Then re spray. You can repeat this process until the desired finish is acheived.

    Regarding the knot, this may well be best left alone.

    Cheers, Ade.
