    Well cautious folk never get burned but they often miss out on opportunities too.

    If you consider eBay to be populated by rapacious vipers - then you were wise to do as you did. With some wizened experience there - I tend to feel confident that I can spot the fraudsters from the honest sellers, although nothing is perfect.

    Yes, if I were selling off a "broken" case of film - I would probably have the expiry date, provided I hadn't already tossed the carton. But I sure as heck wouldn't even know what you mean by emulsion number?

    But, no problem, someone else got the film, you didn't get screwed and the seller has moved on. So everyone's happy. And that's all that really matters.

    I see it the same way.

    I've been using ebay for about 4 years now. I've not yet come across any "rapacious vipers". I have come across many sellers, though, who will advertise aspects of an item that neither I nor they can verify. Some sellers are apologetic in this and won't mind answering questions that attempt to prove the veracity of their claims, others take it as a personal affront that you so much as doubt what they have described in their listing.

    Thread derailment now complete.

    regards,
    Thanasis.

    I have purchased many "bulk-paks" of 35mm slide film, both Kodak and other brands. They come in a plain paper carton with each film in individual cannisters, but the only coding and expiry date is on the outside of the master carton. I have several 50 roll cartons right now. I am not sure of the purpose of packaging film like this, but most manufacturers do package films like this.
