    Save it unopened as a conversation piece, like amidol-stained fingernails.

    Somehow I have this mental image of a collection of black fingernails, laid out across the mantelpiece . . .

    Try it putting benzotriazole in the developer and use shorter developer times. I have exhibited prints done on paper from the 1960's, especially Brovira. I once made a contact print that I later sold on Azo that expired in 1929, deckle edged. Very nice. If there is a little even fog on the white borders a sepia bleach and toning cn make a nice cream color overall.
