Can't comment on the negative trim, but that very scene wasn't part of the original script, if I'm remembering it right, Coppola inserted Luca Brasi's conversation with himself later to account for that incredibly nervy scene (in which Brasi bungled his lines) b/w Montana(Brasi) & Brando. Apparently Coppola loved the genuine nervousness and the scene made the final cut.

Is there a difference between the Coppola Restoration and the Sapphire series? If so, which one is the definitive edition to own?

I don't believe there is a difference.

The restoration is absolutely exquisite for what it's worth. Plasma is the absolute best for watching Godfather 1...the coloring is sublime.

There's no difference in picture/audio quality. The main difference is that you lose all the extras as they are on the 4th disc of the collection. You still get the commentary with the Sapphire disc, but nothing else as far as extras.

If you don't care about extras or only want one of the films then go with the Sapphire. If you want all 3 films plus extras then definitely get the collection.

I don't recall that shot looking particularly rough, but re: using negative trims to replace some shots, there's no reason why using such a shot would make it look "rougher". If anything, the untouched negatives would be in better condition than the well-used negative of the final cut film (which is why some shots had to be replaced in the first place, because they were damaged beyond repair). I also doubt such a long scene with dialogue would be replaced. I recall Robert Harris saying that one of the replaced shots was a shot of Don Corleone in his hospital bed after being shot. Harris was very proud that he was able to find a replacement in a trim of the actual take that was used in the original edit where Marlon Brando's breathing movements matched the original portion of the take used in the edit.
