I super glued a brass plaque into a lid of a box and a little got on the plaque and I want to give it today. Any suggestions

I usually find soapy hot water will free it. Most glues do not adhere that well to brass.

There is a product made special to dissolve or "debond" super glue. It can be found at most hobby stores and probably craft stores. There are literally hundreds of hits on a Google search for this topic. Whatever you decide, test it first to make sure it doesn't adversely mark/discolor you brass!

Acetone is typically used. In a pinch, fingernail polish (based on acetone) works also.

Finger nail polish REMOVER.

Ack! Fingers must have been moving much slower than brain... Yes, fingernail polish REMOVER (based on acetone) works also! Thanks, Guy!
