I know James checked a while ago and didn't have any luck finding the paper used for the JG Parchment maps. I haven't found anything either. Has anybody else found a current source for this type of paper?

I had contacted Hammermill about it, I should have the emails saved.  From what I remember they said they have a museum/showroom/? in Pennsylvania that should have a sample, but I don't think I could get any luck with them still having some.

Could you look because likely it is in Erie only a 1/2 drive away from me.

Penn State University, the Behrend Campus in Erie, PA, has archived information regarding Hammermill and its history over the years.  Erie is the original home of Hammermill Paper Company, founded by Ernst and Otto Behrend.  Hammermill Bond did have a product called Rippletone which did have a pebble like appearance, however, we can not verify the available colors.
Tell us if the search turns up anything.
