Anyone have experience with polishing one of these? I am looking for ideas on polishing the lettering and scrollwork without changing the background.

Hi, I don't know if I would polish it too much. I don't think they were that shiny originally and polishing it would probably give it too much of a "fake" look in my opinion.

I do have an original condition one you can have if yours is in too bad of shape, pm me if you need it.

Thank you. Mine is in good shape but tarnished. I just want to highlige the scrollwork and lettering a bit. I tried a pencil eraser, but it did not give good results.

I would suggest that you simply rub the surface with a piece of Terry cloth or old sweatshirt material. This will enhance the looks without the use of any polishing compound. Dave
