This U.S. case matches the New York Improved Job Case model 2745 shown in Hamilton Manufacturing Co: Modern Printing Office Furniture Catalog 15 (1922) and Printing Plant Equipment, Type Storage Section, Catalog 16 (c.1932) and the model 12745-T in Thompson Cabinet Co: Equipment for Printing Plants, Catalog 47 (c.1949) and Missouri-Central Type Foundry Catalog 1959-60, and also in use at Black Rock Press, University of Nevada, Reno in 1998. Whilst this case has the upper case (right hand) bay with one row of small boxes, three rows of large boxes, and one row of small boxes, the same New York Job case shown earlier by American Type Founders: American Line Type Book (1906) and American Typefounders Co: Catalogue (1923), has only one row of small boxes, and four rows of large boxes. Also, in the bottom row, the ; box is sometimes smaller than the . box underneath it, and sometimes the same size, although the x and q boxes always remain the same size.
The type lay is the Imp New York Job case. There is a Two Third version of the case, which omits the right hand bay. Also, if the top two rows (for small caps and ligatures) are omitted and the 5 rows of caps boxes reduced in size, the case is the same as Hamilton's California Job case.
