Check out these pictures of vintage handwriting samples on old paper from the "Golden Age" of handwriting. The lines on the handwritten letters are spaced 9.5mm apart; the lines on most of my correspondence papers are 10mm apart. Line spacing on note-taking paper (for example, steno/legal pads) and journals is typically 6-8mm.
