Neither Cheap Nor Plastic

Been a little while since I ran a roll of film through my Hasselblad. I was having some problems with the lens shutter sticking at slower speeds since it had been sitting. Managed to loosen it up by leaving the camera in a warm part of the house and rotating the various f-stops and speeds on the lens everyday and it eventually started working again. Definitely need to get it properly cleaned and overhauled.

Most of the shots from this roll were a bit on the underexposed side, but it seemed like more then enough information was there to pull out an image. Strange thing though, a weird texture of some kind is on the film. I don't know if something happened at the lab or if it was just something peculiar about this expired roll. Basically makes it near impossible to save the image, at least with my scanner. This shot was my favorite anyways and was better exposed. If anyone has any clues as to what would cause the texture I'd love to hear about it.

Hasselblad 500C/M, expired Ilford FP4 film. Processed normal, scanned from negative.
