Like you, I bought an original 6250-H from an elderly couple in Iowa and wanted to keep it as original as possible. I cleaned and polished the paint and badge, replaced the head wire and line cord and then spent a lot of time on the blades.  I sanded them progressively down to 3000G and then machine polished them.  I chose not to apply lacquer, preferring to add only a coat of wax.
