Default .22 Caliber -- What's Shorter than "Short"?

Found a .22 caliber bullet and casing (unfired) at an old school site. It is the shortest .22 I've ever seen. The bullet is made out of lead -- not sure what the casing is made from. There is the letter "H" on the bottom (manufacturer's mark, no doubt). Has anyone ever seen a .22 this short? Bullet and casing together measures less than 1/2" in length. In one of the accompanying photos I show it with a modern .22 long rifle and a modern .22 short and a dime for perspective. As can be seen, it is MUCH shorter than a .22 short. Any info would be appreciated. Thanx!
