Huntsville,
It would appear to me that J and C's Polywarmtone might be repackaged Forte Polywarmtone Museum weight (I don't know of anyone else making a 320 gram paper). And I guess Polywarmtone Chamois might be Forte Polywarmtone Art. Both at a great price, and I'd love to give J and C any support I can. Has anyone tried it?

I just finished my first run of Forte Polywarmtone Museum, and really liked it. In selenium, it takes on a subtle red hue if you get it at just the right time. Wait too long, however, and it goes way red.

I asked J and C, but understandibly, they can't say; license agreements, I guess.

I've used both J&C Classic and Forte Polywarmtone and they are not the same paper. The J&C speed is about the same as Ilford Warmtone; Forte's speed is much slower.

All in all, I like the J&C paper, especially when developed in Agfa Neutal WA.

Not sure if they are the same, but the Forte is very nice for contact prints with the Neutol WA mentioned already
