This Portugese typecase lay is the Caixa antiga shown by da Silva, Manual do Tipógrafo, 1962. Note that the boxes for U and J are in alphabetic sequence but K and W are not. The spacing boxes have assumed to be for 1pt, 2pt and 3pt, en and em. The A B etc are small caps. The a o etc are superiors. The case has 169 boxes and is 90x85cm. A modern, smaller, version of the case is Veloso's Single Case with only 129 boxes, omitting the small capitals and many accents.

The empty case configuration is Caixa antiga.
