So happy and so sad at the same time.
How can I *safely* remove that dastardly doodle?

How much of doodling? Can you post a picture so we can see the Binary Radar Note?
do i need to drink something to understand this?
No suggestions from me, sorry.
Lol is this a tested and tried method? The paper looks awesome
silentnviolent, I would invest in a phone call to your State Archives and ask to talk to one of their restoration/preservation folks. Of prime importance -- DON'T do anything to the note until you have a plan! Condition of the note is important but it most important that the note NOT be damaged by chemicals, etc. that would alter it's original condition. Store it in a mylar holder until you're ready or you have someone who has the expertise to assist you.
Just curious if acetone doesn't work for glue, what are other options without damaging the paper?
Simple Green is what I use to remove time stamps from my paper work and you cannot tell
@techwriter I took your advice and called my state historical society who put me in touch with a professional book and paper conservator. She gave me some insight on what I can do at home since (in case anyone was wondering) it would cost $100-200 if I were to have it examined (most likely more if work was to be done).
Luckily the ink appears to be from a felt tip pen and not a ballpoint, so I need to go buy the correct pen and practice a bit before I give it a go.
silentnviolent, so glad to hear the news. Good Luck!! Hey, practice just a little bit before going all out. When you finish, let us know how it all worked out; especially what materials you used. I think many of us would like a few tips on this. Once again, good luck and be careful.
Well, how did it go? I have a bill I would like to get a stamp off.
