The object is a plastic tray with 33 formed cubby-holes in a three-by-eleven array. Each cubby can contain one film cartridge for the 1360 Photo-Digital Storage System.

The primary number on some cartridges is white and on others it is handwritten in black. The primary numbers in this tray are assorted. The secondary number on each cartridge seems to be a serial number and is yellow on the cartridges with a white primary number and is handwritten in black on the cartridges with handwritten black primary numbers.
