5x8 Scovill Double Plate Holder- Quite Old
- Source: eBay
This is another old holder, this time a Scovill 5x8 bottom loading plateholder. I think it is an early dry plate holder. It is old and somewhat worn, but still sturdy and complete. One of the darkslides has been repaired. Inside, t are inserts for 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 plates. Scovill Mfg. Co is stamped on both sides of the holder, and 15 is stamped twice on the bottom. I've seen holders like this displayed with both an American Optical Dry Plate Outfit and a Scovill Waterbury View (Field Cameras of the US website). Payment by Paypal, shipping $9. I only sell and ship within the US, no exceptions.
