I did say that I was going to try to make my next question a hard one.

Here's a clue:

Buster Buckles was working in film in the era when this type of film was used, but it is no longer used.

No.

Okay, another clue.

The type of film that Buster Buckles used and was storing is a comparable analog to highly acidic paper being used in books.

Buster liked silent films and the film had nitrate or something in it that made it um...well...bad. Don't want to give out any spoilers. I can't think of the actual name of it though.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about, but I can't recall the name right now either. I'd have to look it up later sometime...

The Shattered Helmet Chapter 13 page 113

Inside lay the old nitrate celluloid, its pungent smell rising from the tins.

Hardygirl, you got it.  Buster Buckles was working in the film era when Nitrocellulose, or nitrate film, was being used  Unfortunately, because the film was highly unstable, a lot of movie houses were burnt to the ground from the film catching on fire inside the projector, and a number of "room temperature" storage facilities also blew up, which led to the remaining nitrate films being stored in "cold storage", not to mention that "cold storage" also helped to prevent the nitrate from decomposing very quickly.  And nitrate film was also the reason why acetate and cellulose triacetate film were invented (and in the late 1980's the current film base of Polyethelene Terephthalate or PET, which is Polyester based, but this is mostly used for post-production and release prints not for filming) in order to preserve film longer and safer.

Wahoo I got it!! That took some work my friend! Good question!

Now I will try to think of a doozy but mine rarely are...OH well. :)

Btw, there was a movie not too long ago, Inglorious Bastards, that had the lead characters use this type of film to try to kill Hitler.  :o
