You have achieved a result which is very similar to mine. Difficult problem isn't it?
This is something I find regularly on reproductions of old photographs - an effective solution to the problem would be very useful.
In addition to the difficulty of removing patterns in these types of images, there is a difficulty in not losing many details of the image.
The problem is that much of the detail is lost when we remove these patterns.
That is what I have tried without success in these images.
