Refinishing exterior door handle advice. Pic inside

Hey fellow homeowners, will be repainting an exterior metal door at my house in the next couple of days and my door handle is in pretty sad shape (see pic).

I believe that it's made out of nickel or aluminum. Unsure but can I just use some mother's aluminum polish to clean it up a little or how can I restore it's look ? Its original from 10-15yrs ago probably and works fine just doesn't survive the look category department

Thanks for any advice.

If it’s Weiser or Schlage, lifetime finish warranty for original purchaser.

Also, I think its nickel. My sweat plus the Sun does this to our Weiser nickel set and every 3 years I ask for a new one.
