ISO 6 is a good starting point. Working with pinhole cameras for 30 some years, I favor low contrast graded papers. Most recently I have been using Oriental Seagull grade #2 from Freestyle camera and like it a lot.

I recall in the distant past that there had been some discussion of
using silver gelatin enlarging paper in a view camera, eg, 4X5 sheet film
holders to produce a paper negative.
What I am hoping for is a starting point for an equivalent "ISO"
speed for the paper. Even a ball park would be great for me to start
testing. I know that it will vary with manufacturer and other variables but
it is nice to have some idea to save time.
I am not worried about image quality.I am just trying to get an idea
of some suggested ISO.
Thanks in advance.
