Yes, this sort of haze PROBABLY can be removed. In fact, the company that hosts this site offers such a service. Should a beginner attempt it? No. Several reasons. 1) Most people, including most experienced numismatists, will make it worse. 2) The chemicals to do the work can be toxic. 3) The techniques involved are a closely guarded secret.

 

Note: For some odd reason probably due to that year's shipment of the film holder/envelope, the 1956's seem particularly prone to this sort of hazing.
