If it's just a polish scuff and the leather is not damaged, I would keep them. Polishing is easy. Any boot you get in return will have defect if seconds, so there's some value in knowing what you have already.
Well I think I am going to go home and put a few coats of Reno of them and then a coat of black polish and see.
On a side note I got a call from my shoe guys who informed me my pair of Alden Indy boots 403 came in... shoot I forgot about them. My wife is going to kill me
Congrats, Very nice.
