How much restoration would you order?

So I acquired this wonderful Daybill a few months ago, linenbacked it and was pondering if I should add a bit of restoration to it or cut it down as is. How would you proceed if it was your poster that you'd had backed? 

The poster below has two areas that I'm considering addressing. 
1- the last 2 letters in Fonda's name could use some red, and
2- there is a light blue line-from a printers defect I'm guessing-just right of his eye which extends to the edge of the poster. 



Please vote accordingly. Thanks for your participation!

British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
