This German typecase configuration matches that illustrated in Bauer: Handbuch für Schriftsetzer (4th ed 1917 and a later ed in 1920) and in use at In de Bonnfant in 2004. The case is for Fraktur letters. The lay of the type is Frakturkastens. The case has 109 boxes, and as there are no accented letters or small caps, it needs less boxes than the Antiqua case for Latin letters.

There are several other examples of this case, all with differing numbers of boxes:
Lockwood 1894109
Legros & Grant 1916101
Niel 1925107
Hostettler 1949113
Genzmer 1961115
