    They can fit in a Rolleiflex that accepts a glass plate adapter. However, you will only have a 6x6 image on it.

    This, being said, the glass plate accessory is kind of hard to find....

    I am looking forward to see the results of a hundred years old film. I am sure it will still work...

    Kris that is happy to be able to answer to a question on this forum....

    Hi Kristopher: Thanks for your reply.There is no film with the sheaths.The date on the box is 1902.Some additional info for anyone esle who can help me.Not all of the sheaths are kodak.Of the dozen that are in the box,only 4 are kodak, the rest appear to be slightly larger examples of the film septums that are used in graphmatic film holders for 2x3 Graphic cameras.

    Thanks in advance,

    Doug:wink:

    They would fit any glass plate holder of the correct size. However, that sure is an unusual size for plates or film sheaths.
