I seem to recall one recommendation to scan such images four times, each time rotated 90˚ further and then combine those scans.
But in your example the »dints« seem pretty flat – did you scan or photograph the original photograph?
Thanks for answering.
Interesting idea, which basic thinking I partly even can reconstruct.
I do this work for a friend who indeed did scan the photo in 600 dpi...I was just thinking of scanning in a miner high resolution, but fearing/knowing that the faces and all the other details would loose their structures as well...so I was asking here...
Do you mean "combining" their layer.styles...?!?

Stack the scans as Layers in one file, align them and then use Layer Masks or Smart Object Stack Modes to get a result that is intended to hide the effect of the paper’s structure as much as possible.
But the image you posted seems peculiar for a scan, in my experience there usually is a stronger directional effect of the structure.
Inits absence the whole 4-scan-approach seems useless.
