Contrary to Steve Hales' advice, immersion in Chloramine T is not in
the realm of DIY projects. The cure could be very much worse than the
curse. If you are dealing with an appraiser, I suggest that you tell
him/her that you will need to have a conservator assess the damage.
AIC (American Institute for Conservation) can give you some idea of
where to find a competent person in your area. They are in Washington,
DC, at (202) 452-9545.
