If the scratching is widespread enough then my first thought is to not worry about it. You wouldn’t want to risk damaging or losing the patina. You can’t replicate 50 years of mellowing and refinement of sound.

If the scratches are small, just chalk it up to being an instrument that’s a half-century old. It’s not going to be perfect.

Currently looking for a 3-ply 24x14 Ludwig in champagne sparkle w/rail consolette and cymbal mount!
