I'm wonder how to get this chrome removed easily. Any ideas? I let it sit in acetone for 5 hours today and it didn't do much. Any advice?

acetone will not do much, some acid should do...HCl is often used to remove chrome, but beware watch out and take great care using it!
Afterwards you probably need to do some polishing, fine steel wool is likely a good candidate.

Went ahead and sanded it manually

The chrome remaining inside the numerals gives a nice contrast effect. :)
