I almost never buy radios, cars or any thing else for resale value.  I  use 
my gear and if sold, it goes the way it is,  I don't abuse it but I do  use it. 
some of my gear has scratches form other rigs sitting on top, but it's  mine 
so I do as I choose. 
 The fellow was asking about a previous post from someone who used a  silver 
marker to make the raised letters on the orion to stand out for his old  eyes 
( getting old is not for sissies),  and I think if done well its  probably a 
no impact change.  A lot of the time I am known to give  stuff away, and I have 
yet to have a complaint of too many scratches on a  gift.
I understand that some folks like to buy excellent old rigs and keep them  as 
a piece of history, but I am one who uses his stuff.  I find buying and  
selling gear as much fun as using it and have got a fairly decent and very  
station ( with a little help from my friends),  a couple of hundred  dx 
entities on the log and a nice computer controlled multi -multi station  going 
I guess that is what is great about this hobby, there is more than a few  
ways to do it.
Your milage may vary!!

Voids  the warranty and ruins the resale value, of course.
