Babezone, Welcome to RTP

In addition to the cracks and scratches you have a lot of texture pattern going on. You may be able to eliminate it buy rescanning with the "descreen" function of your scan software turned ON.

Link to the higher resolution image was broken for me.

I've gotten this far in about 10 minutes using the Decrack action and some basic bluring tool to mitigate the diagonal pattern. The finish would be lots of clone and healing brush, color adjustment etc.
