I have no idea if any of the repro screens made years ago are still available. It has been many years since they were made so probably not as I seem to recall they sold fairly briskly. Having the steel chrome plated again might be an option but another inexpensive option might be to clean, remove or treat the rust and then paint with gold followed by a clear coat or maybe a gold powder coating would hold up better. Not sure exactly how close either would come to the anodized look but the screen is less prominent and more hidden than other gold pieces so it might work. Almost anything would be better than rust.

Removal of the screen is briefly covered in this thread.
