I was going through my coins over the weekend, and my 1911 Liberty nickel kinda jumped out at me; the reverse of the slab is scratched up. The front is still nice, but the back bugs me, right in the center. Does anyone know if these can be removed safely? Headlight restorer, polishing compound, etc...

I've used some of that headlight polish stuff. On one slab (NGC) it had very little effect and I was disappointed. Last night I tried it again right before photographing my new 1921 Merc (PCGS slab) and it worked amazingly. There had been a big scratch and scuffed area on the reverse concealing the entire lower half of the fasces, but it's virtually gone now. So I guess I'd say YMMV.
