T-MAX 4x5 Film Help Please

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Help. A friend gave me a few sheets of old T-MAX 4x5 sheet film in a light tight black plastic bag. The bag is marked T-MAX (no speed #'s). He didn't remember if it was 100 or 400 ASA. Anyone out there know the notching pattern for these films? Much appreciated.

Kodak has images of the code notches on their web site under the Technical Publication section for TMAX, specifically number F-32.

I know the 100 by heart...two small v shaped notches, just a little bit apart...the 400 is more like a square notch follwed quickly by two shaped ones...
