If the scratches are deep/cover the focal areas,send them back to be "reholdered"
Novus, sold via Wizard Coin Supply.
Goo Gone (used VERY sparingly, it's oily and spreads easily) is good when shooting photos as it tends to fill the hairline scratches that would otherwise catch light and appear in your shots. It also takes off most gunk from stickers and labels people may have attached to the slabs.
Wow, that stuff's expensive (for silica embedded in hydrocarbons, which is what they all are).
I've sent coins into NGC for reholdering when the slabs were really bad. They charge $10 to reholder, but I discovered that if you send in an already holdered coin for variety attribution, they will reholder it for you for free. Since attribution is $15, it's only $5 more to do this, so if it's worth an extra $5 to you to get a variety on the label I suggest you go that route instead.
Now THAT'S a very good idea (although not all coins have documented attributions).
And it also makes your slabs smell better
BTW, plain ol' Colgate's Toothpaste (the original) works best.
