    I thought that for a moment, but the chalk calculations on the pillar next to the slotter indicated that the negative wasn't reversed...I just think that the angle and lighting prevented the existing scan to properly show those details.

    Russian? In reverse? How would we tell?

    Was a long time before pixels could better represent detail than high quality film stock.

    Pretty good chance it's Russian if you see фжяьи and such letters, but a lot is shared with Greek due to good old Saint Cyril.

    1202 would have been Kievan Rus or Feudal Rus, the first version of Russia didn't come about until the 1500s. More than you wanted to know.

    Oh, and for Western Politicians and other uninformed people, the Soviet Union СССР (SSSR) ended in the early 1990s...it no longer exists. What is there now is the Russian Federation. Not quite the same animal.

    crap when did my wife get on hear? just kidding.

    Ive gotten some nice stuff from russia..well somewhere over there off flebay some nice internal mics like new from about 2mm up to 10mm.I wish i could afford to get more from that guy.he has all kinds of stuff. I also got some american Wix fuel filters...but when they arived..made in Russia...Wix assured me they were made to the same std's.. but also said those are not to be sold in the USA..I got all warm and fuzzy feeling from that. I would think they were at least better than the china stuff. and possibly better than the made in usa stuff.
