The photo's below show the scale plates from a very early cottage style stick barometer. As you can see from the before photo, the original silvering was almost gone, and what was left had oxidized to the point that it was almost impossible to take a reading.

Below are 3 pictures of another scale. The first shows the original, then completely stripped, finally rewaxed and silvered.
