Default Apparently obscure question I need help with

On the Seiko 5 watch dial there is the raised Seiko logo and "5" on the upper middle dial. Has anyone removed this before? I am needing a flat surface and surface marring isn't an issue as long as it's contained within the footprint of the original logo.
I am wading through a lot while searching so I'm hoping someone can help. I don't really want to get a junk dial unless someone knows of a domestic source for a scraper. Thanks for any help

Take thhe dial off and look at the rear, if its removable you will see two holes where the feet attach it to the dial, i must say though that i honestly have not even looked before, so i might be incorrect.

I figured it out. There are small pins that hold them in so I used a dental pick on the backside to loosen the emblems and the pried them off from the front using a dial protector and the dental pick.
