It is from 1958, and apparently is a moving coil type. Some information about it is provided at the Cartridge Database site (search under "Fairchild" in the drop-down box listing manufacturers):

Also, you'll see an indication in this article that it evolved into the Model 230, which is also listed at cartridgedb.com:
