Default 1980s-90s wire photo negative questions

Hello, I recently purchased the backlog of 1980s/90s wire photos from a newspaper. I had to take the bad (10s of thousands of lasers) with the good ( plenty of Type I photos from the era and negatives)

There is a decent quantity of negatives for press photos. There are 4 different for each photo ( black, magenta, yellow, and cyan). Do these make good color prints

Can't answer your questions, but negatives, especially ones as you describe, are rare.

The range from small "mug shot" photos to about the size of a photo that would take up the middle of the front page of a sports section.

The color separations are for making the four printing plates needed.

I'm not sure you could get a color photo print from them.
But, it should be possible to scan them in monochrome, change to the right color and overlay them to get a computer print.

The individual ones should be printable photographically, if you can find a lab that would make contact prints.
The black would be the best, but it will only produce a newspaper quality halftone.

Unless they provided full photographic four color negatives so the newspaper could do the halftone screening themselves. Then you could get a passable print from the black one, but it might look a little off.
