Look at that top edge of the film there's clearly emulsion missing.

The 120 version sometimes says "F PAN" also 400 for the 400 speed film. The BULK FOMA does NOT have edge printing.
MY guess is that someone had some film that got wet or other wise damaged and they sold it loose to cover that up. ALL the FOMA and ULTRA.EDU I have bought form Freestyle came in individual cardboard boxes.
I still live just beyond the fringe in Stittsville
Thread resurrection! I have similar symptoms with 20-year-old 70mm Tech Pan - see my post here and scroll down for the image sample.
Given that I've received some tech pan that has evolved so far that it'd be legally allowed to vote, it would seem to support the notion that the original poster here also has something growing on their film.
In my case I can tell you for sure that it's not double exposures; I made my series of exposure test shots using film loaded directly from a factory-sealed Kodak box. In my case, you can barely see the fungus (?) on the surface of the film outside the image area but it has no silver density there. It's only where fungus AND optical exposure occur together that the effect is visible, as if the fungus is acting as a development catalyst.
The patterns are a little different on mine too.
