    Hey lokey. As long as the wire itself isn't damaged (broken), it shouldn't matter much. Enamel is pretty much all you can do with it. IMO you won't notice a difference in the output.

    Provided that you dont have a short circuit between adjacent turns, there should be no problem.

    Paint the whole coil with polyurethane varnish.
