This New Zealand lay is that shown on the New Zealand Printing Museum website in 2015. It is unusual in the positioning of p w and y. Although not a California Job case as such, New Norcia put y above the i box, and Glasgow School of Art put g there, and the B.P.S. put v there. U.S. lays start 1 and 2 above the i box, and nearly all other lays put spacing there. Another unusual feature is putting ff fi fl ffi ffl in the top right row. Only Shepherd, Sheffield and Melbourne do this, and Glasgow, but one row down, although a few others have some, but not all, of the ligatures in the top row. The Museum in 2020 also has a card from the Melbourne Museum of Printing (2019) that has a different Job Case lay, with seven rows in the upper case section, and the caps starting at the top.
The empty configuration is shown as California Job (e.g.Whetton 1946 or Lieberman 1963) although there is an alternative style of Henry 1917) that has the : ; boxes smaller than the . - and x q boxes.
