The best why to repair a damaged print is to have two of the same damaged prints and repair the least damaged print with a small piece from the more damaged print. I don't have a picture of an example of such a repair.
I have seen prints that were "remargined". In this case, since margins have no printing on them (or the margin with a white area on the other side of the line that frames the print) you don't have to worry about matching the print.
Since, I try to buy large lots of prints (I've bought lots of 65 and 80 prints) to get a low price/print, there are always some clinkers in the lot. So, I've got just about every type of damage that prints can have.
Here's some worm damage. This one, if I frame it with strips between the prints that covers the worm holes, at least it would look good on the wall.
