    So is it safe to put this back in a s/c?

    I would say so. You may notice a small drop in performance, but I would think it would still be ok. As you said, it's barely noticeable. It's just the outer tips right? How's the housing look?

    I have continued run some with simillar type of marks. BUT ofcoarse it would be best to have re balanced. But not a must!

    If the fins are a little sharp or burred up, use a wet stone (like the ones to sharpen knives) and a little oil to smooth first.

    +1 on the rebalance. A good idea, but not a "must"
