coat of rust. Other than those two small  breaks, the rest of that area of
the cable looks fine. 
    You're allowed a total of six broken strands  (out of 7 x 19) and still 
be within spec.

        I wouldn't bother. Unless  there is serious rust (yours isn't), 
real damage (which I doubt yours doesn't  have) or the aforementioned 7 or more 
broken strands, you're fine.
