Err, I think restoration is impossible unless you have it facetted: if you reduce the diameter to remove the bruises, you remove the etched advertising information, and significantly change (and I guess devalue) the paperweight.  Not quite a dead parrot, but close.

pics of the weight and damage. i think it might be worth more than £50. really nice weight
Your weight is mentioned in the Charlton Catalogue - but no image and no valuation.
You find an image in the Reflections Magazine 1987 - but it would be nice if we could add a few more views, i.e. some of your images to our online Caithness catalogue: do we get your permission?
