    Here's a question for the Beseler people.

    I somehow ended up with a 2-1/4 X 3-1/4 negative carrier that is 8-1/4 inces in diameter. The markings on this are 2434RN.

    I'm thinking this is a carrier for the older Beseler 45 series but when I look at their web site the same size carrier has a part number 8314.

    I want to sell this item, but hesitate to start until I am sure what it is.

    Can anyone help on this?

    Does the bottom have a circular ring around it? If so, it is for a 23C, if flat is should be for a 45

    My 23C carriers are 6 3/8" dia. They are marked 2434RNC (Roll) and 2434 CNC (sheet film).

    Well it has a flat bottom and it definitly does NOT fit a 23C as I have a 23C of my own.

    My Beseler neg carriers have pins that help register the carrier... But overall, 2 flat dishes with a hinge.

    It's for the 45MX.
