I would normally buy a new one. I guess it is possible that it is rated at sixty just because of some design issue, like to make it more comfortable to ride. Often over inflating causes the tire to expand right off the rim. So the remaining question would be if you pump it up and it doesn't get way fatter, or pop free of the rim, does that mean it is safe to ride it at the higher inflation. I don't know the answer, but you could try overinflating it since on the occasions when I have done it, it hasn't been damaged, it just didn't work.
