    Thank you kindly for the advice everybody! Appreciated! Will have to try the tray method as Ian suggested. I don't have either ID-11 or D76. Well actually, I think I have D76 but I'm not touching a whole pack just for one film. I do have HC-110, XTOL and Ilford DD-X handy.

    Dear Jarvman,

    Please see Ian Grants post, he is spot on : ID11/D76 12 mins : We occasionally get films sent to us and this is the standard that we would use.

    Mystery Film to develop

    If you don't have D76 available, Xtol yields very low fog. Use stock developer. I would try 10 minutes at 68 F / 20 C.
    The key is to try to lift the exposed values above the accumulated fog, and few developers develop shadows like Xtol does.

    More importantly - don't promise the film's owner anything results wise. There's always risk of unusable results from film this old, risk that is beyond your control.

    Hello;
    I would question if the film has been exposed yet? Notice the frame size on the roll and the masking tape. I think this information would only be printed on the unexposed end of the roll, Steven.

    hi jarvman ..

    do you have any dektol or ansco130?

    you might also consider 1:7 for about 8-9 minutes the same
    development method ian suggested, if you don't have d76/id11.

    have fun solving your mystery !

    Use the XTOL!

    He will be able to tell in the darkroom or tent by unrolling the paper until he reaches the film. If it is attached with tape then it is unexposed, if it is free to flail about it is exposed. If he is going to measure it as suggested earlier he will ascertain any way whether it has been exposed or not. Personally with masking tape I'd guess it was exposed. The original would have had a paper tape round it.

    Cheers Simon. I wonder about development though, will 12 mins be alright if I'm sloshing it through a tray. Wouldn't that be the same as continual agitation? And yes, it says 'exposed' on the outer paper.

    12 minutes will be fine it's not in the developer continuously and you see-saw it gently.
