There is also a possibility that this is a 1942 vintage print with a mag
stripe added at a later date. There were several companies that offered
the service of striping prints so that people could add their own
soundtracks. There were also home striping machines that allowed amateur
to stripe their own films, but I would hazard a guess that the striping on
an amateur gauge film would not pre-date the early 1960s.
