Is there a way to remove light scratches from silverplate ? I know I can buy a liquid silver solution that re-plates it... but I don't want it to look too shiny and refinished - just soften the look of the scratches.. if that makes sense. The piece is a large navy serving tray.

Is there some miracle paste or cleaner out there?

following up and wondering if anyone has tried one of the popular re-plating solutions like Medallion... or if you would recommend something else.

If so -- how did it turn out?

I did try a product that put a temporary silver coating on but I have forgotten the name. This was probably 20 years ago and it may have been Medallion.
As I recall it only worked on copper and it only lasted one or two polishings. I decided to live with a little copper showing. On Old Sheffield Plate I think a little copper showing is attractive. I do not think it worked on white metal.

Thank you. I may give Medallion a try to see what happens. Have plenty of old silverplate spoons to experiment with.
