This (possibly) Austrian typecase lay is in Niel, Satztechnisches Taschen-Lexikon, 1925 (Wien). It differs slightly from the Fraktur case of Bauer (1917), and has two more boxes. The types are Fraktur, and not Roman as shown here. The box with -- is for em dash and ¦ is for a dagger. The | is a long s and s represents etc. Spacing (Ausschluß) is normally em=Gevierte, en=Halbgevierte, then 3pt, 2pt, 1½pt and 1pt, but is not shown by Niel.

The empty case is Fraktur.
