Looking for Help with Unusual Brass Type

I have several drawers of an unusual brass type; odd in its not being "type high" for use in a standard KwikPrint. It's short, with base to top height of about 1/4": 17/64, or 6.65 mm. Since it won't work in my usual machines, I made a typeholder by mounting a multi-line pallet from the Kensol sideways on a metal block. Can anyone tell me more about this type or supply a picture of the original typeholder?

We recently hosted a field trip for home schoolers studying the middle ages; a great group of kids and a chance to show off some unique book structures.
