The emulsion number on my box is 210582 with no expiry. That in itself inspires little confidence.

The X-raying I'm referring to is when the film enters the country, not during its domestic transport, which should be ok. I have absolutely no faith whatsoever in any assurances given by DHS about their not zapping it. Absolutely none.

I think Dave Goldfarb has the best explanation. Don't buy too much of this stuff, and use it fast.
