In fact I have a few new S&S 6 1/2 X 8 1/2 holders stashed around somewhere from a batch that we made a couple of years back for a customer. If anyone is interested just contact me directly,

The 6 1/2 X 8 1/2 (or full plate) format has a lot of history behind it as it was one of the most popular formats in the 19th century. I personally favor it over 5X7 for vertical shots of still life work, flowers and so forth.
