The closeups of the top look like a vinyl covering to me. More like a contact paper than a laminate. Those became pretty common in the 70’s and are still common on the cheap “wood finish” furniture you buy from Target, Walmart and Ikea. I probably would not mess with it unless you want to completely remove it and paint it or apply a new veneer to it. While it doesn’t look too nice, I am afraid it will look worse if you try to fix it.
