Re: mystery paper



Yup, Jim and Henk solved it--it is Hahnemuehle!  Thanks.  I will not be using it for gum, then :) but for solarplate as in reading my Daniel Smith catalog it seems like a soft intaglio paper.  Good to know I will have another use for it.  I think someone gave me a stack of it in 2005 when I was in grad school, and in cleaning out my dimroom last night I came across it for the first time since then.
 
Thanks you all!
Chris

Ok, now it's really bugging me...I scanned a watermark--well, it's actually an imprimatur or stamp--of it here:

I may be totally offbase but it looks like a rooster??

Henk sent me two ideas, Schollhammer and Magnani crown and it isn't either.

I have a stack of the stuff but I'd hate to shrink it and find out it is not suitable for gum.  Plus it'd be nice to find out if it is a good pt/pd paper if someone can identify it.

Hi Chris,

No other image in the circle?  Just a circle?

I have a pack of paper that has nice texture, 4 deckle edges, and a round imprimatur on it.  Is this Rising Stonehenge?  Or Arches Cover?  I think it is Stonehenge, but if someone has a piece of the Stonehenge they can check for that circular stamp, could you verify if I am correct?
