Hello I am fixing up a 1938 Zenith console that has a brass frame over the round dial. What is the popular opinion on weather I should leave it as-is with a nice patina or polish it to a high gloss shine. Thanks for your ideas. Norman

Personally, I'd leave at least most of the patina. Corosion not good, but, neither is too polished either. I'd say best left well enough alone.

If it is one of the larger escutcheons, it would probably be distracting if polished. The Zenith dial faces are a thing of beauty on their own.

Welcome to TRF! Like the others have said, there is no right or wrong answer to that question.
