    I dunno about all the technical requirements you have, but I quite like kentmere fineprint VC. Glossy fibre, pretty neutral, white base. I haven't selenium toned it yet.

    What I want is a glossy surface, white base, neutral (not cold) tone, variable contrast and a paper speed in the neighborhood of Forte PW (which I think is ISO 160 w/o filtration). It would be nice if it would respond to Kodak Rapid Selenium toner with the ability to control the tone desired.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks for the responses. I have used Oriental Warmtone but it was some time ago, I don't remember too much about how it processed but it did look pretty nice. I probably ought to give Kentmere a try since I can get it from Freestyle. I might be wrong, but was Kentmere ever the manufacturer for Cache or Luminos brand papers that used to be available in the US? I tried the warmtone papers in both those brands and really disliked them--especially the Cache.

    The price of Ilford Warmtone, last time I looked, is over $100 for a box of 50 11x14 sheets from Freestyle. If it was 100 sheet boxes, I would jump on that deal!

    Kentmere was indeed the manufacturer of Luminos papers. Luminos never made anything, AFAIK.
