Found Film - Verichrome Pan 120

To the left is a sealed VP120 expired in Dec. 1967 - to be kept for posterity. On the right is an exposed roll I stand developed in Rodinal 1:100 for 60 minutes. These came in a box of old cameras and expired film.
The roll produced seven frames on a single subject. It seems like the person was bracketing exposure and this was the only one with a hand in the frame which I found, made it just a tad more interesting. It is still not as exciting as found film articles I've seen in the internet. However now I know why long time photo aficionados lament the demise of Verichrome Pan, I would have loved to shoot with this emulsion. It reminds me somewhat of Plus X, but with richer tonality.
