Wow, that's better than many 1980s vintage slides and prints!
One thing this just reminded me of, and it may take me some digging, literally, to find out, is that our family may have some 1950s and 1960s vintage Kodachrome that I didn't even think of.
When I was young, we had a movie camera, and I'm sure that most of the movie film of that era was Kodachrome. (I do remember my one brother having to search to find B&W movie film in the mid 1960s.) I think some of these old films may be in my stepmom's storage locker in the cellar of her building, and next time I'm out there (quite possibly not until the holidays) I'm going to see if I can find them.
If they are indeed Kodachrome, they may be very well preserved.
