I would say that this is a type 232, except that the distance between the bars is ~15 mm, while type 232 has a between-the-bars distance of 12.5 to 13 mm.

The T&T catalog has the following note:
Note 3: Styles 232 to 254 are metal devices and are not generally subject to age degradation as are the rubber devices. However, dimensional variation due to the strength of the impression and the inking quality may occur.

Is 2 mm of dimensional variation in the range of possible variation?

Thanks for the help.

The next version of the PSS Town & Type catalog [8th edition] will be changed. The specification for PSS-232 will be 12-15 mm spacing of the lines. They try for perfection but sometimes errors slip through.
