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.
