Re: B5

From:Lee & Peggy Wenk <>

"B" was for buffered sublimate, meaning a buffered mercuric fixative.

"5" because it was the 5th formulation that was the best. As opposed
to B-12 or B-17.

(Wouldn't that have been fun - having a fixative that people think
was named after a vitamin or an bomber! That would have added
to the confusion!)
