I actually got a scratch on the outer reg part, so you can see it. The inner is even worse but that doesn't bother, since like you said, you don't see it. And I was being really careful but had to use so much force to unscrew both parts apart that I still managed to leave a mark.
I emailed KEE and requested a new one, even if I have to pay for it.
