Hello everyone,

I have a roll of about 100 feet of old 16 mm film.
The leader has the number 4 0144 (with the space) and the tail has number 26352522 perforated into the film.
The label on the film indicates it is captured in Madison and Chicago during 1945. It contains both color and black/white sections.
* * *
My questions become:
1 - Are there any identification properties or codes hidden in those numbers that were used back in the day to help me verify/refute the handwritten label of Madison, Chicago 1945?
2 - Additionally, do those numbers serve to help me further ID the film and the date it was shot?

Thanks for any help/clarification...
