    Grade 5 paper?

    I'm thinking about doing some wet darkroom printing and started looking for papers. In the past my two favorites were Agfa grades 4 and 5. I don't see at Freestyle any grade 5.

    Does anyone make any papers today with the brillant white and glossy backs that Agfa had in '70's?

    Freestyle does have their "version" of Agfa's 111 VC, but I haven't see anything in a very long time for a grade 5, even on ebay. I lucked out getting a few boxes of Record Rapid #3 and about 10 boxes of the actual Agfa 111 on eBay.

    My best guess would be to constantly check eBay, there's really no where else that I could find really good papers at this point.

    Thanks I'll start checking eBay. Last night I was looking a some prints I had made over 30 years ago and they were as crisp as the day they were printed. I won't even dream of finding any grade 6....
