    What is the finish on the Azo? If it is really old emulsion, I imagine that Michael Smith would trade current emulsion for it.

    Yes, I'll trade fresh, new Azo for the box you have. Let me know if you are interested. I need the old Azo to print a portfolio of older prints. Thanks.

    Hey, I'd like that GAF paper. Would work great with the 7X11 negs. I have some 1964 Gaevert Contactone that I'm using up. Let me know what it is and what you want for it. Jim

    Sure, I'll trade up and throw the box on ice for the day when I finally break into 8x10. The 5x7 box is lustre finish, and the 8x10 is glossy.

    Well, all I can get from the box is that it is dimensions. It seems to have been opened at one point, and resealed at some point with thick black tape which has now deteriorated leaving black crust over the label where all the info would be. I could probably take a sheet out and just run a quick contact test to see what the finish/weight is like, and if it even still works.

    I have a friend who is an art/photo teacher. He picks up old, outdated paper and lets his student run the stuff thru inkjet printers for fun. Perhaps there is a use for digital!

    In all of my big box of outdated paper, the Kodabromide was the only one that was completely dead. No sensitivity left - just random blobs and dots.

    Even 40 years old Agfa Brovira was better - and that was outdated when I bought it 30 years ago.

    BTW, none of my papers had been refrigerated - or even stored cool.
