Hi Damien, this photo was scanned from a negative and needs to be fixed for an upcoming film project. Is there something I can do about the moire in Reagan's jacket? Thanks in advance for your help.

Yikes, yes. Long gone.  If it's not possible, I get it. I just thought if ANYONE would have a fix, it would be you. But I'm prepared to tell the filmmakers "no can fix" if that's your verdict.

The issue is that MUCH too much sharpening was applied in the scan.

Well, it doesn't need a fix, because there isn't a problem.  As you said, there's no moire at 100%.

So you need to tell the filmmakers to be more careful when resizing.  https://www.damiensymonds.net/2015/02/moire.html

Re: the sharpening. Yes, it's true. All we have left of the Governor Reagan years were these little teeny negatives. To scan them at a resolution for posterity, they were scanned at like a bazillion dpi and the files ended up at about a gazillion MB each.
