It's the middle row, right?

No, it's 6x4.5 top, 6x6 middle and 6x9 bottom. (There aren't any numbers corresponding to 6x7 on 120 backing paper.)

Not up to date with 120 numbering as all the cameras I have do not use red window. Isn't it 645, 6x6 and 6x9? IIRC 6x7 is a more recent format (1950s?) and probably all transport was already indexed without red window then.

Oh darn.

My cunning plan just sank like a brick then... Back to the drawing board, I need to find me a way to have a small handheld camera with an approx 90mm or 100mm lens and 6x7 back...

Is this the print through problem? I can see "Kodak" making a ghostly appearance on the top centre of this shot on Tmax 100 from my Blad 500 C/M. John Mc

I can clearly see what you mean even on my 2012 11" laptop, which doesn't have the best resolution.

When did you purchase the film?

I'm asking when the film was purchased, because a factory rep claimed in December of 2018, that Kodak has recently added plastic coating on the film side of the backing paper to prevent any bleed though of the ink.

I purchased the film in 2017 or early 2018, so it is older stock. I have used four of the five rolls of the 120 pro-pack, but this is the only shot that I noticed any print-through on. It says 06/2017 on the bottom of the pack and what is possibly a batch number of 0971 002. I'll have to shoot the last roll soon and have a careful look as I scan for more "ghosts"...
