    Simon,

    This paper existed in very recent memory. I almost bought some from B and H a few months ago.

    It has been discontinued according to B and H.

    Perhaps it was repackaged Kodak stock.

    Kodak DID make a b/w RC panchromatic paper for processing in RA-4 chemistry. I know, I still have a partial box. It was intended for the same purpose as Kodak Panalure, that is to make good quality b/w images from color negatives. Used to be a big business in this supplying b/w bridals and engagement images to newspapers. The photographer would only shoot color film, so the bride could order color prints, and provide b/w prints to the newspapers. I found the paper "finickey". If the chemistry was only a tiny bit "off" the b/w image would not be a true b/w. To my eyes, the older Panalure paper looked better, but perhaps that was just my processing. In any case the Panalure, and the later RC RA-4 Chromogenic paper had to be exposed and processed in virtual darkness. The safelight recommendations did not provide much light at all. Neither of these papers were intended for making good b/w prints from b/w negatives, as their response was tailored to the orange masked C-41 color negative.
