Not all new pressings suck but the Beatles stereo remasters were not well-received, especially by discerning listeners, for all of the reasons you've described.
I assume your scratched copy is a US pressing and some US pressings are readily available for not a lot of money. Not all, but some. Used shops in Louisville generally have a handful of 1970s-era reissues with the orange or plum Capitol labels for $10-$15.
BUT there are a lot of US pressings, so you'll need to figure out which one is yours and proceed from there. You can do that on the linked page. If you're not familiar with Discogs, first check the left-hand column to make sure you're looking at the LP format and then the column that specifies country of origin.
You apparently really like yours so why not find a better copy?
The US Beatles albums on the late 70s Capitol purple label with large logo at top have very good SQ, remastered by excellent engineers, e.g., Gene Thomspon ("Gene" in deadwax), Wally Traugott ("Wally," "Wly"), Ken Perry ("KP"), et al, & I think are most often preferred for SQ to orig black/rainbow caps & usually reasonable priced, as you say, $10-15.
