Ummm... beg to differ. The 029 keypunch that I currently have in my
collection, and the 026 that I had some years back most assuredly DID have
the capability to print along the top edge of the card.

Now, I will grant that this feature can be switched off, or not selected
as an installed option when the unit was orginally ordered... But the
capability does exist in both units.
