    Age of Ilford Cooltone RC Paper - Pre-Harman

    I am particularly fond of the Ilford Cooltone RC paper, but it isn't widely available around here (the Vancouver, BC, Canada area). There is a store in Vancouver (Leo's Cameras) that has some stock, but it appears to be all sourced from Ilford Imaging - the predecessor to the current version of Ilford (Harman Technology Ltd.). I'd like to know the minimum age of this stock, because I'd like Leo's to have a chance to make me an offer I cannot refuse . I don't have a batch number at this time.
    Thanks
    Matt

    It is quite awkward for me to get there, and it may be that there is more than one batch involved. That is why I asked about the minimum age of this paper.

    That would be a bit too old for me, assuming it's stored at ambient.
