If it were me, I would replace the coil.

Is this a customer repair? From your perspective, you have to consider warranty returns and customer satisfaction. If you have any doubt on the condition of the coil, it should be replaced. I would also keep in mind that the coil manufacturer packages the coil in graphite (or whatever) for a reason. While it may (appear to) work fine now, there may be some unexpected behaviours.
