Shane,

If you need to do a minor repair to the document I think the best low tech way to do it is to use cigarette paper and egg white. I have tried it even on some banknotes from my collection, and it works fine.

McLenin,

The bad guys making fake entries in the award documents manage to remove original entries very nicely, but the approach to newer entries should be a little different, because the ink hasn't "sunk" into the paper yet.

The solution you use will differ depending on the ink. For regular blue ink I start with moist q-tip, rolling it over the entry, making sure not to leave any fresh marks on the paper. Try not to get the paper too wet. This will remove about 20% of the ink. Let the paper dry for a day, and finish with ink pen dipped in very diluted chlorine solution. Try the solution on other documents first, it should be diluted enought not to remove the background in the document. Try it on some documents that you don't need. for entries made in black synthetic ink start with step two. The result is not perfect, but I think it's acceptable.

Alexei
