Verichrome Pan in Monobath A2
I bought a "vintage, exposed roll" of Verichrome 127 film from an ebay vendor in England who retrieved the roll from an old Yashica 44. One frame was exposed, but the rest, sadly, are blank. Here we see that the image was exposed sometime after 1983, as that appears to be a 1983 Nissan Sentra, right hand drive, in the image. Uploaded here as a larger, clickable file, so you can see it in a little more detail.
Verichrome pan is a dye sensitized thin emulsion film - though I am not sure what they mean by "thin". The base + emulsion measures exactly 0.004".
Interesting scene of an English semi-detached, perhaps on Easter or some occasion, with the family out front.
Just processed this morning, and scanned-in minutes ago. 10 minutes at 75F in Monobath A2. 20-30 year latent image!
