I don't have a catalog specifically for this product, I think it is a 3/8" metal lath that was wired to the top chord and used solely as a concrete form.  If you can view the underside, you should see a diamond shaped mesh pattern. 3/8" was used for joist spacings to 24" and 3/4" was used for joist spacing between 24" and 30".  I am still going through old catalogs to see if I have that product.
