1974 6.5-20 x 40mm Leupold

I just received this scope and it looks rough. Not very clear at all. It looks bright enough in the bright light, but I am wondering if I send it to leupold for rehab work, how much better can it be? I have a VX3 4.5-14 x 40mm that is 5 years old that has a 1000x's more clarity. The older scope might of lost it's gas seal.
Could this scope after rehab be worth installing M4 turrets? Is it possible to bring back to life such an old scope? Thanks in advance!
I checked the leupy site and it maybe a 1997 model instead. Suffix E.
