Question on cleaning and comic restoration2963

Collector bige31 private msg quote post Address this user
I have teen titans 2 graded 8.5 but I think the reason for this is it's got a pretty rusty staple. I was wondering is that something easy to have cleaned and Is that considered restoration?

If would be considered conservation - not restoration.

it will be listed on the label as having been conserved. conservation is something you do to protect the comic from deteriorating further - whereas restoration is something you do to increase the look of the comic - typically by adding something.

So is that something that is easy for someone to do and is it relatively inexpensive?
