That's so sweet and I think they're even so much better when they're worn. Funny it has already steel saddles. Several changes happen in 1954, including the saddles, and this one still has everything from a black guard (end of black guard blonde, black guard, serial number on the bridge), but already steel saddles. Brass saddles can bring a difference in tone, closer to pure black guard character, and that's a swaping that can be easily considered, for usage only of course, keeping preciously the original ones. That's just a comment in case this question would become accurate for you while testing the tone. Congratulation anyway, it's a pure beauty!
