Yes. But probably not by much. The reason has to do with the configuration of credit scoring software. Credit scores places the most emphasis, 35%, on what has occured recently (within the last 12 mos). So, information so old that it is "dropping off" is not causing much of a deduction anyway. However, the deduction that is being generated would be gone once the data falls off. Even if this is only a few points, yes, your score would recover those points.
