Outside freeze proof water faucet

I have managed to mangle part of my outside faucet. I had a hose on for too long a period and in trying to remove it, managed to mangle the threads on the relief valve. Please see attached pictures. It is now out of round and I can't seem to get it threaded back on to the faucet. It has fine threads toward the faucet end and hose threads on the other.
Would anyone have a sugesstion as to how to make this somewhat round again so that I can thread it back on and make the faucet usable again. I can't seem to find anyone around here with a suggestion, outside of replacing the whole faucet. This would entail unsoldering the unit inside the house and reoldering a new on on.
Thanks so much!
John
