I have printed this neg a few times and hadn't noticed it before (including an RC one I gave to someone which included some spotting so I had examined it pretty closely) so I grabbed the very 1st print of it I had done and I could see the scratch, so it had been there all along! Did the nose grease trick on the emulsion side (1st time had to do that) and couldn't see the scratch in the print! When I have done the nose grease trickin the past, once I've finished with that neg (that night or maybe a day later) I clean it with some film cleaner before putting away in the neg sleeve.
