Perhaps surprisingly, I have often done this by hand.  Choose a very
fine grit -- the best in the UK is "Brasso", intended for polishing
brass, as you might guess. Use a soft clean cloth.  You can get quite
serious scratches out by multiple applications and polishes.  The
surface acquires a slight "wave" where you work on it most, but they
seem to be readable usually.

There's nothing like the old ways...
