I'd be more concerned if those problems were on calf. Shell cordovan is pretty resilient, I would take a cotton cloth + cordovan creme or a deer bone and work over the areas. Ideally it shouldn't have come to you in that condition, but might as well give it a shot first as it'll cost you about the same to ship it back. Cordovan creme and a deer bone should be in your rotation if you have any shell.
