Thanks for commenting, Julio, Phil, and Graham; good to hear that Verichrome is still recognized. I should have mentioned in the original post that the film was exposed in a Brownie Hawkeye; I'll add that here. I got used to VP in my Rollei 4x4 (I no longer have it); after they dropped Tri-X in 127 size, VP was the only other b&w 127 film I was aware of. At that time, too, I used Montgomery Wards in St. Paul for photo equipment; they kept stock of 127 in Ektachrome, Kodacolor, and VP-- if I was aware of any import films, I guess I didn't think of trying to find them. Kodak stopped making Ektachrome in 127 in the '80s and eventually cut out VP, too (I still have 4 or 5 rolls and they expired in 1986). So I sold the 4x4 and bought a 6x6 Rollei and used 120 VP in it as long as I could get it; I once asked Don, the proprietor of the store where I bought it who else bought VP and he said, "You, another amateur, and a HS photo teacher". I was just going by hunch and preference, so I am happy to hear, Graham, that you chose it over Plux-X. Besides the 127 rolls, I still have some VP in 620 and 116; I'd better try to use it this summer.
