It is time for one of my Petzvals to have a facelift, the front element has a number of scratches that i would like to get rid of... Who provide such a service?

Two sources that are outstanding for lens restoration are Steve Grimes and Focal Point Lens (John).



I would open both websites and read about their services. Both are located in the United States. I have personally used both of them and have been very happy. It should be noted that Focal Point Lens also recoats lenses, although this doesn't apply to your 1860 lens. Best of luck.

You can also try ultraflat (www.ultraflat.com). They polished of a damaged coating of my Zeiss lens and did an excellent job. They can also apply coatings if needed.
