i just recently purchased a mc speedy 30 from eluxury and absolutely love the bag, but i'm so over protected of it b/c of the brass metals. i'm so afraid of getting scratches on them, but it seems like that's hard to avoid. people who own a mc speedy 30, how do you avoid scratches or remove them? does it lower the value of the bag? also, am i too anal about not getting scratches?
