I have a few old ... let's just say Hollerith cards ... LOL ... and the
stock feels a little reminiscent of that of a manilla folder or 3x5 card,
but slightly thicker. It's kind of an odd basis weight ... too heavy for
cheap folders, too light for expensive folders ... wouldn't be amenable to
running through a printer due to the rigidity ... so probably very few
applications for that particular grade of paper besides making Hollerith
cards ... I'm not totally surprised it would be hard to find these days.
