I have a few boxes of J&C Nuance on my shelf next to the Azo. I specifically purchased the Nuance because I read it did not have developer incorporated. My Azo should last me about 20 years, so it will likely be a while before I get to some of these papers....
Just because a paper is a chloride or near chloride does not give it magical keeping properties, nor does it give the image tone of a true Azo print! So, just remember this when you really want a contact print with a chloride emulsion.
