~ 40 KM 135-36, still just fine.
I'm currently working on two 100 sheet boxes of Plus-X Pan Professional in 4x5. It expired in Nov 1969, so I assume it's several years older than that. I had trouble with Leopard spot looking blotches. I then quit using stop bath altogether and the spots disappeared. So far, so good.
I have some super XX from 1991 that is plenty good with little base fog.
I think I've got some 8x10" from that same batch.

hehehehe and I do have more, A lot more! but I wont bore you any further.
The oldest film I have is a kodachrome Roll which is dated something in the late 30's and also indicates a weird speed. I would need to find it to confirm its exact date.
Oldest I have is a box of 5x7 Eastman Nitrate Pan film, to be developed before 1934. Still not sure if I want to open it and try shooting with it or not.
I have 5 or 6 boxes of 1doz each 4x5 eastman nitrate film from france. Dev before 1947.
If your wondering, yes nitrate film does burn really fast when near heat. I had to try a bad sheet.
The film still holds a very faint image. It is very green and blotchy with mold.
These are in my rare & expired pile:
1 box of APX 25 4x5 25 sheet
1 box of APX 100 4x5 25 sheet
1 box of RS 50 4x5 50 sheet
1 roll of 14" x about 75' left of Kodalith Ortho type 3
5 boxes of Kodak EPN 4x5 50 sheet
1 box of Plus X 4x5 25 sheet
10 rolls of APX 400 120
5 rolls of APX 100 120
1 rolls of Konica IR 750 120
In my not terribly old but rare pile i have 1 500' roll of tech pan exp 1992.
Edit: I forgot the stash of Aerial film.
9.5"x125' Kodak Tri-x Aerographic Film #2403
9.5"x500' kodak Aerographic Direct Duplicating Film #2422
5"x350' kodak Aerographic duplicating RA 2425
I have some rare papers also.
About 250 or more sheets of Kodak Ektalure X paper in 11x14 and 16x20. Ektalure X has a beautiful pattern on it.
1 box of GAF Allura 16x20 50 sheet
1 box of Agfa Gevarto 16x20 50 sheet
2 boxes of 8.5x11 sterling pro rc contact paper 250 sheet
I think thats it for the rare stuff. I have lots of new also. I really like the ERA 4x5 film.
I want more...more film....more!!!

Sadly, I'll never get to try them out. Whenever I can find it, though, I stock up on frozen-stored Fujichrome RMS 100/1000, regardless whether it's 120/220 or 135. Time and again, there's something about that emulsion's properties which I really like. That it was only produced for a couple of years makes it a bit challenging to find, alas.
Nevertheless, since other mentioned having these in their freezer, I guess I am grateful to still have a few HIE and EIR supplies left, and with quite recent expiry dates at that (which means that discussion belongs to a thread on "Less-old fresh frozen film").
