How it was done:

Used calculations on the red channel in overlay mode to increase contrast and copied the result and used it as a new layer.

Selected the stains and used a curve to lighten until they matched the surrounding areas.

Used an inverted highpass layer to soften the picture.

Used the stamp tool to restore detail.

Used the dust and scratches filter to remove some of the roughness.

Used a filter to remove noise.

Did a lot of dodge and burn to even out things (shapes).

That's it.
