    The End Is Near, and I need some Kodachrome !

    K25, or K64 would be perfect.

    I have Two $20 bills from Scotland in my wallet serving me no purpose on Long Island.
    Check the currency conversion, I haven't taken a look as yet.

    Would love to have at least 2 rolls !, 4 would be nice !!
    Must Be In A Sealed Box. Must have a 2009 expiration date.

    Best Offer Gets The Bucks !!!

    I also have a Vivitar Series 1, 70-210 Nikon Mount, Original design with 67mm thread
    that I would consider trading for a Couple O' Rolls O' Chrome.

    I offered K200-36 and a mailer from 1991. Both went for a donation to APUG about a month ago. You should have been here.

    I remember, I was just being stubborn I always used 25, or 64.
    You know how us APUG'ers can be resistant to changes !

    At $19.99 for 36 exp.! They also have 24 exp. for (I think it was) $7.69. They had better start dropping their prices on the 36 quick or they're going to end up making no money.

    20.00 GBP = $31.1840 USD

    United Kingdom Pounds United States Dollars
    1 GBP = 1.55920 USD 1 USD = 0.641355 GBP

    So are Scottish $20 bills.
    Scottish £20 notes on the other hand are worth a lot. Roughly £20 each... :wink:

    So stop pestering me.
    I'm in New York minding my own business.
    It' all about our Worthle$$ Dollar Bill$ here.

    Ron,

    I dug into the lowest drawer of my freezer and actually found a K25/36! It has a 10/2001 Expiration date, but was stored in the deep freezer @-25°C/-13°F ever since I bought it fresh. I would offer it for a donation to APUG. But please note, that I would have to ship it from Europe which means a certain x-ray risk.

    Thilo

    Hi Ron,

    I don't know the shipping cost. I'll put it in a padded envelope and take it to the post office. You don´t have to pay for the shipping, just add a few bucks to your APUG donation :smile:

    All I need is a confirmation of your donation and your full address.

    Best,
    Thilo

    Thanks Thilo,

    That's Perfect !
    I will send a PM, when I complete the donation.

    Do you still want Kodachrome? I have 4-6 rolls of K64 left, and can trade them.
