A full-size Hebrew Cap Case (using a standard Upper case) made by Hamilton as illustrated in American Type Founders Specimen 1923 and holding the letters with masoretic points (nb there are no capital letters in Hebrew).|
There are variants in the construction of such a case, and indeed in that of ordinary Upper cases, and there are also variants in the distribution (lay) of the Hebrew characters, see eg Southward.
|A full-size Hebrew Lower Case (using a standard U.S. Lower case) made by Hamilton as illustrated in American Type Founders Specimen 1923 and holding the normal Hebrew characters, plus loose points and spacing.|
There are many variations in both the construction of ordinary Lower cases, and the layout of the Hebrew characters in the case, eg Southward's of 1887.
