HC110 is supposed to be a relatively low fog developer.  That might help 
a bit but I wouldn't expect miracles.  If they were all the same 
expiration date, batch, and were stored the same way a test might make 
sense, however since they weren't every roll is likely to be an 
experiment that won't relate to any other roll. Other than that, you'll 
pay quite a bit for custom development, with no guarantees any place 
that/'s willing to take on the job.  There might well be usable images 
on the film.  B&W film older than that has been developed to usable images.

The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog.
