    I just got a mystery roll of film, which seems to be Kodak made B&W. The Bar code on the Cassette is 010764. the trailing 4 indicates a 36 expsosure roll of course, and the first digit is a "do not care", so the middle 4 digits are the film type. it is not the same stuff as Arista 400 as that has a code of x1029x. Both the base and the emulsion are much darker in colour than Tri-X. It came in a clear and grey Kodak style can, and the package says made in USA packaged in Mexico. The leader has a little notch the same as other Kodak made films.

    I don't have any Tmax 400 to compare, so I was wondering if any of you have a loose roll that you could check the numbers printed under the bar code on the cassette?

    Tri-X pan 400 exp 7/1999 says 010273 (24 exp)

    Tmax100 -- 010734
    100Tmax -- 010793
    400Tmax -- 010294 and another is 010804
    Tmax400 -- 010744

    That was fun -- never noticed the numbers before. What else does your cassette say?

    Interesting, there ar a few more variants than I suspected.

    The cassette in question is from a package I could not resist ordering one package from B&H just to see what it was. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/827224-REG/Lomography_632_Lady_Grey_B_W_400.html

    I did not want to reveal this link at first as I did not want to get off on a lomography tangent.

    For Kodak B&W I have been mostly using the Arista Premium 400 (my slightly older current stock is emulsion 1521 with bar code 010294 on the cassette and 400TX (emulsion 1721 bar-code 010294)

    Curious what the Lady Grey is, Tmax400 or somethink from the back of Kodak's Warehouse. the cassettes are printed with the lomography brand, just like any other private label film would have the customer's artwork printed. The package did not have an emusion number or date on the outside.

    Lady grey is normally Tmax400 but it is edge printed BW400 the spool end may be tight in a spotmatics bottom plate location, it needs a lot of fixing.
