Yup, that's just scuffed metal. Lint, dust, and dirt slowly work their way under the case and are then trapped against the body of the iPod, slowly rubbing away.

I would never put acid on my iPod. It's scuffs, don't worry, unless your trying to sell it..

I don't want acid near a device I paid $300 for.
