In 1969, when I was a student at Washington & Lee University, I got access
to the school's observatory. The head of the Physics Department was a
noted tightwad and bought materials at any cutrate auction he could find.
I used Kodak D-76 with an expiration date of 1939 and paper (ex-USAF photo
recon rolls) with an expiration date of 1959. Both worked fine.
I have never had a problem with old schwarz-weisse material though, I will
admit, expired colour products sometimes show a colour shift.
