A pretty common configuration, although I would appreciate some information about its origin.

I have a similar machine and it is from Greater Manchester Transport which is what it prints on the ticket

Yes, there is a third stud, central but below the level of the two normal ones. This stud has the appearance of having had the top part slightly ground away (although it looks as though it's meant to be like that - just my way of describing it).

Interestingly, my "European" (small ticket roll) one is also like that, although there is no sign of it having been vehicle-mounted.

It looks like an ex-London Country Bus Services machine, one of the later ones which had a third stud on the bedplate thus requiring a slightly modified mounting bracket for the on-bus stand.

As can be seen, the £ keyband is partly crushed in and will not pass the 3-4 marks freely and the handle is broken off (just out of sight in the picture).
It is unusual as the bedplate (see next picture) has the slot for an insert ticket, but the end door hasn't, nor is there a 'trigger' which the inserted ticket would operate. The lead seals had a proper Almex raised 'A'. A good spray with a certain water displacment agent has eased matters!
