Not exactly. Full plate is a size that existed long before the 6.5" X
8.5" size became standard. Full plate is always very close to 6.5" X
8.5" but it is in fact a nominal size and holders and cameras were
not built to any specific standard. I own several different old
"full-plate" cameras, one made in England, and holders that fit these
cameras are absolutely not inter-changeable with the 6.5" X 8.5"
format that appears to have become standard sometime around the turn
of the century with cameras made by Gundlach, Eastman, Seneca, etc.
