Depending on the paint it shouldn't be too hard to get off without removing the plating. (If there is any)... all depends on what kind of paint was used...

I picked up a Slingerland cloud WW II aluminum badge which is silver and with red writing/etching. Unfortunately, some yokel had painted it metallic light blue! It took a while but with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol (I also tried hot water/soap, goo gone, lighter fluid, paint thinner, and hand sanitizer, too), and gently rubbing it after soaking in warm water, all the blue paint eventually came off with no damage to the underlying badge or red ink......obviously, I am a professional amateur and just was going for things around the house, but luckily it worked!
