So far we have heard about 5, 6, 7, 8 and 13 index holes hard sector disks. All kinds of hard sectored disks are welcome but most importantly they should be good working order and run on real system. Disks must have more than one index hole - otherwise it is soft sectored. See the link below so you can see the difference.
Soft vs hard-sectored floppy:

Northstar and Heath were commonly known to use hard-sectored floppies but is there other systems? Apple II used sometimes hard-sectored floppies because its disk drive doesn't have the sensor for index hole at all. Especially if there's PC based systems that actually used hard-sectored disks are very interesting.
If you have got test material please reply to this thread. For more details like shipping addess we can use forum's private messages.
Based on Stack Exchange answer:
Hard sectored 8" and 5-1/4" floppy disks were used in some early computers including:
- DEC Pro 350
- Heath/Zenith H-89a
- MITS Altair 8800BT
- NorthStar Horizon
- Vector Graphic computers
- Processor Technology add-on for the Sol-20 computer called the Helios II Disk Memory System
- Compudata Exidy Sorcerer add-on floppy drive based on the Micropolis
- Quite some of the Zilog dev systems (MCZ 1/15, MCZ 1/30, MCZ 1/05)
