    I got a box of 50 11x14 Panalure II RC and some 8x10, 4x5, and a big bag of some odd size (8.5x11 perhaps?) from a local photog. Any comments on this paper?

    It is panchromatic intended for printing color negatives. It is easily fogged by any safelight except perhaps by a WR13.

    From the Kodak Black-and-White Darkroom Dataguide (1988):

    PANALURE- Panchromatic single-contrast paper for enlargements from color negatives-- commercial, portrait and school applications
    Availability-F (Smooth, Glossy: Single weight); Paper base-Fiber; Base tint (White)

    PANALURE II RC- Faster than Panalure Paper with the same applications.
    Availability-F (Smooth, Glossy: Medium weight); Paper base-RC; Base tint (White)

    Both papers are for printing Black-and-White from color negatives.
