The quality gets completely lost and it doesn't really look unique in the least in a scan. The paper itself has a very strong characteristic.
The prints on it can be astounding though. I have a very large print of Clay Harmon's and it is a perfect image. The paper, the process, the subject all work wonderfully in concert and create a sum far greater than the individual components.
... as all photography processes, papers, tools etc should do when utilized by each of us.
I highly recommend you try to seek out someone close by that can show you some examples in the flesh.
