Phillipp, I'm sure you're aware that there are both ANSI and ISO
standards available for punched cards. Sadly, I don't have a copy of
the X3.11 standard, but if I did, I'd send it to you.
150,000 cards is what, 75 boxes? Heck, that's not that much. I
probably had at least 50 in my office at one point...
