Hi, It might be risky to work with this film. Does it smell and is it already dissolving? If it just the metal casing then there should be no problem. I have restorated nitrate films from late Ottoman but they were kept in good condition and in new cases. If you can send a picture of it, the case and the film itself it might be easier to tell. And I'd like to have such a photo, too.
