This typecase configuration matches that of MacKellar: The American Printer (2nd edition 1866, and e.g. 5th ed. 1870, 15th ed. 1885 and still 17th ed. 1889). It is also shown by Southward: Practical Printing (1882 to 1900) and Jacobi: Printing, 5th ed. 1913.
The typecase is almost the same as the normal U.S. Lower case, except that the s box is divided into two. Note that the BBS version divides the h and o boxes as well, and a later Lockwood version (1894) divides the o and h boxes horizontally rather than vertically, and widens the w box.
