Original 35mm slide: Kodak Kodachrome or Ektachrome unless otherwise noted
These are classic old original slides from major collections. Most are Kodak Processed Kodachromes. Some are as old as the early 1940's, the very first years Kodachrome was available. Kodachrome is known for its amazing color stability, and you will see some 70-year-old Kodachromes listed here that look as if they were shot yesterday, but be aware that after 50+ years, even the best quality photo dyes may begin to shift.
*Expect to see some dust specks on the scan, and often there are minor imperfections and/or scratches from normal handling and projection over the years. Sharpness of the original image can be determined by the scan. Examine the scan carefully before offerding. My scans are unedited, so "what you see is what you get".
*Many of these vintage slides were published in magazines, books, and professional journals in the years before the digital revolution. They were removed from their mounts, duplicated by analog methods, and remounted, either in their original frames, or in generic replacement mounts if the frame was seriously damaged in the process. I will note slides that are not in their original mounts. Depending on the publisher, some are very neatly remounted; some are not. As the original mount and the photographer’s notes are critical to establishing the authenticity of the slide, previously published slide mounts are offered in “as is” condition.
*Slides noted as “previously published”, will be taped on one or more edges. The mount will be serviceable, but will NOT be pristine. Some weakening of the cardboard may be present. If a pristine mount is critical to your collecting interests, these slides are NOT for you!
* IF you have not received your order after 14 days, please contact me for a “heads up” and I will make certain I haven’t overlooked the shipment on this end. (Yup, it happens…) USPS service has undergone many changes, and that has resulted in much longer transit times. With few exceptions, orders arrive within 30 days of shipping date, so we can’t consider a shipment lost until that time.
* Please pay for your purchases promptly. With ’s constantly rising fees and expenses, it’s imperative. Purchases not completed will go to “Unpaid items” after ten days, and will be reported to . If you have an occasional problem, just let me know. You must communicate!
*I ship to Canada and Europe! Postage is $1.35 for up to three slides. Larger purchases will ship International First Class at current rate. Please wait for invoice.
