It kind of looks like both older Portra 400 NC but also one of the two Pro 100 Pxx films. Surely it is C-41 film though?

Good Afternoon, Towolf,

I've checked through some Kodak Data books from the 1970's and 1980's; nothing I found matches. The wider notch to the left doesn't really have a Kodak "look" to it.

It looks like a Kodak C-41 400 speed film. Sorry I can't give you more than that. Look into the older Portra ranges.

Digging the nearest is the Vericolor C41 internegative range:

4112 has the LHS correct but not the RHS which is the Special Order code, so perhaps a special order of the 4112 in some way?

Maybe the earlier SO 412 ? 412 would fit as would the SO code, that would date it pre 1978.

Just because it is rarely quoted here is an historic Ansco notch code page:

It's not dissimilar to new Portra 400, which I just bought a box of.

I souped this today in Digibase C41. There’s absolutely nothing on it. It looks weird for C41. The backside looks black, but I cannot remove it, so not remjet? The front looks olive green and I can scrape it off. Looking through, there’s no image, and the base color is more or less dark amber as in other C41.

And there’s a marking along the edge that is not printed, it is embossed or stamped: 711 KODAK

Anyone have an idea what this is?

There is no orange base colour. The orange colour that you see at (most of the current) C-41 films is the colour of the unexposed but processed emulsion.

One could call it basic hue though.
