Treating Sheet Lead

A colleague who is not on the DistList would like to confer with a
conservator about treatment options for a work by Jasper Johns,
entitled "Bread."  Issued in 1969 as an edition of 60 and 10 artists
proofs, it consists of a painting on paper of a slice of bread that
is affixed to a background of sheet lead.  The piece in question has
a number of indentations and scratches in the lead that are felt to
impair or impact the aesthetics of the piece.  I am interested in
learning if anyone has or knows of someone with experience with this
work or with remediating scratches and indentations on sheet lead.
