Probably OK, and you don't want to try finding the exact inductance value online. Just be careful cleaning around any coils. Those are not easy to repair, so use a long-bristle 1" wide paint brush to get all the dust off.

I remember opening old TVs to see dust much worse than that, mostly from houses too near a road, farm field, or with the heat register near the TV on a forced air system. There were literally several-inch long icicles of dust hanging off the CRT leads in one set.

That coil is called an RF coil on the schematic.  What purpose does it serve?

How would I test it to make sure it is good?  There are no specifications given for it on the parts list.  Just check for continuity?
I'm great at multi-tasking.  I can listen, ignore, and forget all at the same time.
