Light scratches on gold

This is my "new" 1946-1950 gold tech I picked up yesterday. It shines beautifully after a good bath and scrubbing bubbles.

But is there anything I can really do about the light scratching on the head?

I may just live with it then. That is until I find a shinier tech. then I will definitely try the micro fiber approach and see what it does. That pic I posted makes those tiny scratches look much much worse than they really are.

I wanna be sedated!
I have had some success with Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound. It is not quite as harsh a Brasso. If you want to try it use a tiny bit with a soft cloth, and buff vigorously. Be fair warned, the plating is pretty thin on those Techs, you could buff it right off.
