It is a random grain emulsion like TX (close cousin). The effects of different developers are pronouced very well with this film, so far my favored is a home made Edwal 10.

I don't remember, but it was cheaper option rather. They have an option to pay taxes at the point of delivery, but if someone would elect this the shipping goes up 4 times.

This is nice choice, I like Foma 100 and 200. There is however even bigger shortage of Foma 200 than Plus-X at the moment. Only Freestyle has it and is marked "low stock".

Beutler is one of the cheapest developers you can have. It does not go well with all films, it is not fine grain, use it on slow films. For me it is a standard for TMX, Delta 100 and Efke 25....

In 120 it might be HP5, but 135 I would suspect Kentmere 400. For UX100 in 135 I would give 95% it is K100.

On the edges usually are frame numbers and name of the film. But there are films without it like Arista Edu 100 (which is Fomapan 100). So you maybe have some No Name film.
