Tested and confirmed working
Vintage analog photographic paper. Manufactured in Germany by AGFA, tested and confirmed working by BromideOxides Studio.
Expired, no info about expiration date on box but I'm guessing for around 1985 - 95.
Single weight, lovely warm tone (photos by iPhone does not show it correctly)
Special grade shows a little bit of its "speciality", paper good for sharp architecture negatives or portraits.
Exact size: 12,7 x 17,8 cm (5 x 7 inch)
Box of Record Rapid vintage photographic paper was collected by me in winter 2020/21 and since then stored in cool and dry place (5-10°C . 55-65% humidity). Box was opened and tested by me in February 2020, then confirmed working with D166 developer (please see Read More below) - packed in light-proof box that contains 20 sheets, and again stored in cool and dry place.
- Eukobrom or W14 developer leaving a little bit grey tint smoke on whole paper, including even not exposed areas, however it looks nice in some prints, you can use D166 developer to reduce it
- no cracked gelatine found
- no any spots of bacteria (white undeveloped spots)
