Hi Mike,  
My vote would be to keep it original. It has some collectibility. I just have the head, wish I had the speaker cab as well. I need to go through mine, paid seventy five dollars for it but never fired it up. Mine also has the Silvertone labelled tubes.  
I hear it's good for blues, brakes up early, etc. I remember in the sixties a couple of friends of mine who were in a band had a pair of the same amps. They couldn't afford Fenders but they still sounded pretty darn good. They did a lot of the old Stones and other groups from the '62 to '65 era. Have you fired it up yet? There is a Silvertone site on the Web. Just search for Silvertone. If I can find the address I'll post it.  
Well, good luck to you. Terry
