    This does not look like any Bessler carrier I have ever seen. My bet is that it is "custom" carrier or for a scientific application.

    Sheeesh, you guys are all freaking wrong. That's not a Beseler or an Omega carrier. Those are actually table tennis paddles with interchangeable faces.

    Seriously, the tongue part, don't look like a Beseler. Looks like one but all the Beseler ones I've seen were just straight tongues and not curvey like that. BTW, it looks too large for the 23, if it is a Beseler, it's probably for the large format one.

    Maybe the guy on the Antique Road show knows what it is

    Seems odd, given how long it's been since the film or cameras were made, but 101 and 106 films are close to that size. The 101 is 3 1/4" square, which would be closer to correct (76 mm is almost exactly three inches); 106 was a cartridge format and was 3 1/2" square.

    Alternately, might it be for printing the negatives from Type 85 Polaroid? I dont' know precisely, but ISTM that film is just under 3 inches square...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
