How big are the brassed patches, you could try enamel model spray paint.
not really sure whether the gloss or matt would suit the 1d finish. But gloss is normally tougher.
Mask off and spray lightly to build up the layers.http://www.testors.com/products/135997
Very small patches--tiny dings really. It'd be too much of a pain in the arse to tape off and spray.

use black touch-up paint pen, matte black, the one intended for guns/rifle.
ask your local sports good store or try ebay.
I've one and it's great.
I've seen this suggestion elsewhere as well. Is there a particular brand or model I should be looking out for? I don't really frequent gun stores in my area. I'd prefer something specific I can just buy online.

I have used flat black model paint that I purchased at a hobby store. I used a tooth pick to apply a few very thin layers to get the desired finish. It will not rub off like magic marker will and the color looks almost identical to the factory paint. If you make a mistake applying the paint, use just a little bit of nail polish remover on a cotton ball to remove it. Just take your time and it should look great!
I don't think sharpies would rub off... in fact I think I may just give sharpie market a try on one of the small dings, and see how it looks.
I may give the model paint suggestion a try as well--only $2.50 a bottle at my local hobby shop.
