Dave and Luke
I ended up using Dave's suggestion of the hot water this morning. It was tentative at first in heating up the pot of water and then immersing the badge. Dave's point about it might take a longer time in the water proved to be true. The lacquer came off in stages, but it did come off. It took a rough and patchy looking badge to a nice looking silver badge. In the end I boiled a pot of water and shut down the heat source and then immersed the badge in it. After at least 15 minutes I took it out and brushed it with a tooth brush. I repeated and slowly the lacquer came of. I just wanted to thank you fellows for offering up your experience.
