I always thought they were chrome over pot metal, so chrome cleaner should 
be fine. IIRC, there were 2 versions of that emblem: that one and an earlier 
one. I THINK the groove in the one in your photo should have black paint in 
it. The earlier one did not have that groove.

According to the parts book, the early one was a 113 part and was used up 
thru '69.
