    Don't know, the edges are hidden and my dad shot it.

    So did you keep the ears or have them cropped?

    I wanted ears like yours. Mine only got bigger.

    :tongue:

    Do you know if yours was projected often? Mine was and I do see fading by comparison...

    Probably not that often, dad would share new stuff at the typical saturday night slide shows with a couple different sets of friends, some more, some less, but pretty rare beyond that.

    Regardless of how many times they were shown most of my dad's Kodachromes look great, the bigger issue there seems to be the color temp when shot. His Ektachromes from that era though are another story.

    Those are great, Mark. In fact you've inspired me to post a few oldies. From before I existed. Pardon the awful scans.
