Birth certificates. Marriage certificates. Immigration papers. These papers the fading, smears and discoloration should be corrected.
Old letter from your great grandfather that was written during World War I or World War II. Those should not be restored till it looks like it was written yesterday doing so will take away from the history. Leave a little of the paper discoloration. The creases and folds.
