    Great....I have batch #5206! I haven't opened it yet though. Berrger paper is the same cost per sq. inch no matter how much or what size you buy. I wonder if I should even try this stuff or send it back to B&S. The only reason I got it was they were out of stock of the 11X14.

    I got my 11x14 COT from B&S (batch #5206) and I've used about half of the package already. It seems to me to be fine. What size do you have, Mike?

    I got the 11x14 but I buy it in France. I am happy to hear that it works for you this sound like I got bad package but not all the batch is bad. Be sure that I don't make any mistake like cutting with blade. the print which show the marks are coated with coating rod. and when I change of bacth using the same chemical I got no problem with the print.

    Thanks Diane and Mike.

    Just noticed this, I have some COT320, picked it up from Freestyle (but I think they get it direct from B&S) in 11x14, will check the batch # when I get home tonight...but when you might check with Freestyle to see if they have any or a different batch.

    I bought the 22X30 size and I have talked to B&S this morning and they say they haven't had any complaints to date on this.

    I resisted, I really did, but I had to go home and check my batch number. It's 5205. Whew....

    While this is an important topic to those of us putting noble metals on paper, I can't help but think this is truly one of the most esoteric topics ever discussed on this forum.

    At that hypothetical APUG conference, in a hotel bar, late at night, a group of the alt printers reminiscing about batches of uncoated paper. "Now that batch 4917, there was a great paper..." And knowing nods, all around...
