What does 201/3 mean in a lettering stencil?

A Standardgraph technical lettering stencil that used to belong to my dad is designated as 201/3. (Image here). I'm pretty sure the 3 is for 3mm. What does the 201 mean?

Look at this Standardgraph catalog starting on page 50. It looks like the 201 is the model number for the DIN 1451 typeface in sloping bold. As you suspected, the 3 means a “lettering size” of 3mm.
