    Take it out, roll a 12exp roll in a darkroom/bag/tent and test that baby! Agfa is one of my favorite and most shot films.

    I'll try to load it up ASAP. I don't have a scanner but I might try some prints if it turns out OK.

    My first thought when I see that is "Nitrate Film"! and perhaps stewing in its own vapours for 60 years! (sealed can) BE VERY Careful.

    BAck in the 60's Kodak packed their bulk film in a paper bag, or wrapped in black paper. I only ever found one roll of AGFA ISS bulk in my reckless youth, and I can't recall how it was wrapped, which means the black paper is likely.

    I wouldn't open it at all, now attempt to use it. It's now a piece of history, and should be respected as such. I bought some WW2 vintage unopened Agfa "Aeropan" film for use in air reconnaissance cameras. That was 20 years ago, has Eagle & Hakenkreuz, the whole thing. Have never thought of opening it, and never will.

    I hope you don't ruin the integrity of what you purchased, by attempting to actually use it.

    Just my 2¢
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.
