    I think the suggestion to develop an unexposed sheet was a good one. If the spots show up, it's a paper issue. If the sheet develops without spots, it's another issue.

    BTW, don't worry about the "microscopic" edge exposure, as long as there isn't exposure into the sheet. You can trim it, or, if you mat it, it won't be seen.

    I'm not sure how to make best use of it; I could cut it down and use it for contact sheets+proofs+test strips. I still find the spots a bit puzzling.[/QUOTE]

    Cut in half to make 7x11s, 11x14 film can be used for printing full-frame 35mm.

    Use it to show digital technoids the wonders and magic of a darkroom. On second thought, forget them, and use it to introduce youngsters to real photography through photograms. If you have a large-format camera, you can even use it to make paper negatives from it. Then contact print them to make positives, just like Fox Talbot did in the early 1800s. Kids love this stuff! It's a sure way to get them off their game boys.
