Is it possible to restore the matting on old brass dial clock? The dial on one of mine has had some later holes plugged but the restorer left some scratch marks in the matting and one small area of matting is slightly flattened. The scratching is very light and only visible when the light falls on it from certain angles and probably won't be noticeable when it is in the case, but the flattened area is noticeable. I suspect that the scratching will become less visible as the brass tarnishes a little as fresh scratch marks tend to be more noticeable than old ones.
