    Along the way in my various scavenging of ancient film, I've picked up various boxes I can't use because I don't have a camera the right size. Here is a bunch of sheet film both smaller and larger than the 4x5 camera I have, so it's of no use to me. It's likely of no use to anyone given the age (1930's and 1940's mostly!) but hey maybe the boxes are quaint enough to keep around. I think all of them are unsealed, but most of them feel near full. I haven't opened any of them I have no idea what you'll find inside. It's a surprise!

    I know what you'll probably find in one of them (see last pic) and would therefore be hesitant to actually mail that one. If you're anywhere even remotely in the Chicago area (like for instance that includes Indiana and Wisconsin) we can try to get together and hand these off in person. If I'm mailing them I don't think I should include that box.

    Let's call it $5 for all of them, plus $7 shipping in the US. Outside the US we'll have to figure out the exact shipping. Handoff in the Chicago area just requires a $5 bill, obviously, no shipping charges.

    Payment sent, Thanks again! Oh ya no worries on the flammable film, after reading up on it I'd have second thoughts to send it through the mail too, although would be interesting to see what kind of picture the film could produce, "if" still usable

    OK, I have that box of nitrate film that isn't going to Canada with the rest of it, and I already have my $5 payment for the film. Anyone nearby want it for free? I live in Vernon Hills and work in Northbrook, but I also work with and know people that are in other areas, so we might be able to get it from me to you with a little work.
