Rare (?) Carrier for the Focomat v35

Yes,its a rare appearance of Leica part 17424 which is the 13x17mm carrier for negatives of more or less that size.I say more or less as there were  popular 16mm German cameras at 12x17mm but the 110 film format was nominally 13x17 and this is ,I think, its main intended use.The lower view above reveals more of the attention to detail in the engineering of this precision component. Film holding cups can be attached but in my experience are hardly necessary- who keeps film in a full length roll when developed?
