I have come across several cartons of Ampex 631, 7' reels. They reel boxes are still plastic wrapped. It is the old style gray box with AMPEX in the lower right. All the boxes have labels with lines and lines of numbers and etc, and what seems to be a date code....7/86.
Any way to tell the vintage of the tape by this label, and if it is from 86, is it sticky shed stuff??
