I'd leave it alone. The badges were struck in brass and my understanding is they were plated later on down the road. You can find plated versions without too much difficulty.

Hi, picked up these two over the weekend, I'm quite pleased with them but as this badge has been repro'ed I thought I'd run it by the experts, thanks in advance for your views, Mike

Default Brass badges

Just a note on brass “pre plated” and perhaps all ALI cap badges. The Bondy reproduction of this cap badge has North and South lugs. TANK will still be visible at the back but you will notice grind marks on the rear where the casting process has been cleaned up.
