Can any member please advise when Kodak finished processing their RED BORDER 35mm slides? It is useful in dating slides when researching. I have googled but found no answer. Thanks for reading.

Strange, I thought Kodak had always printed the frame/slide number and the date on the cardboard mount.

That is a very useful link Marconi Sahib. I appreciate that. According to that chart the Red Border Greymounts were not dated which is a pity.
ps...I bought an Epson scanner after reading your comments so thanks for that too.
I will renew my subscription to SN as soon as I am able too.

The early Fuji plastic mounts were not dated or numbered either, which is a real pain.

Also, be aware that some cameras, the Canon EOS 3x series was one, wound the film completely out before taking pics, with the result that the slides are numbered in reverse order.

Scorcher, I started taking Kodak slides the end of 1957 and when I finished in 1963 Kodak and Agfa were changing to plastic, looking at my cardboard slides I have none later than Sept 1962.
