6 5/8" supers are mediums or Illinois

the frames are 6 1/4"

wax foundation is 5 5/8"


Please be sure and look at the bee supply catalog you are ordering from, there can be several different sizes.

and most of the places from which you will order are happy to help you out if you call.  they know it can be confusing and they'd rather help you with an order than manage a return or unhappy customer   Wink

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
