Nothing like a pleasant surprise now and then.
A very pleasant surprise. If the paper is very old, it's probably going to be better than if it's just a bit old, especially if it's not a warm tone paper. I have graded Brovira from the 1970s that's still good, but Portriga from a bit later is shot completely. This is with temperate indoor storage.
