Crazy thing is I can still buy Verichrome Pan on eBay. I just got a 1966 expired VP 126 Kodapak, expired in May 1966 so I figure it must be from one of the first runs. Got some 1959 expired 620 too which must be first run as well as Verichrome Pan came out in 1956 (was ortho before that, just Verchrome, not Pan). So there will be PX in 120 around for a while I presume. 125 ISO film lasts well past its expiry date so the current 2012 May expiry should last for a while if you insist on shooting it like silly me with my love of VP. Of course I shoot FP4+ more because at $3.69 roll it is much cheaper than hunting down VP all the time but once in a while it is fun to shoot the old films again.

I'm still not sure I should shoot these old rolls but on the other hand I don't collect cameras that are that old or older, I shoot them, so I should probably shoot the film too...
