An impressive restoration.
I am working on this myself, but as of yet not got anywhere near the quality that you have achieved.
Can I ask, are the eyes painted? Or borrowed?
It’s a hard restoration, and you have made a first rate job.

Thanks for the encouraging words. I adjusted the levels for the most amount of facial detail and made a copy to reference as I did the restore. The eyes were basically intact and required only a little emphasis. The only features that are a bit obscured are moms nose and mouth, so they are best guesses. Unfortunatly there's so much crackle that its tough to restore without making it look like a painting.
