Thanks for that info, I will see if I can buy any of that paper! I've been trying to find a supply of backing paper for my Kodak Monitor (I can "bulk load" 70mm film (when I can find any!) but backing paper is the fly in the ointment; I have a scant few rolls that I've resigned myself to sacrificing (they're "collectable", IMO) for their paper).
I want to use this camera, because it has the beautiful (uncoated) K.A. 135/4.7 lens (basically an uncoated Ektar). I bought the camera on the cheap, to cannibalize it for the shutter (I need to find a cheap #2 Supermatic for my barrel-mount 203/7.7 K.A. (again, the uncoated version of the Ektar "cult lens", which I stripped out of my old "Pako 45" printer, as I recall) -- but, the camera was such a beaut that I could not bring myself to tear it down.
Yes, it would be nice if it had a rangefinder (what was the deal with so many cameras in the 30s and 40s being sold with excellent lenses and "guess focusing"?), but, I've got an uncoupled rangefinder I can stick in the shoe, plus, I expect most of my exposures to be at infinity.
