Thanks for the warning about the broken PDF, for unknown reasons the
text pages and the 1E??-table work with AcroReader 3. The evidence
on these pages is what's today an ordinary ß in a larger font, while
the lower case ß in these examples is the variant I've learned in
school ("Grüß Gott, Kasperl") some decades ago (long-s z ligature).
It's not a new character. It shows that an ordinary ß is sometimes
used together with capital letters instead of SS (or even SZ), and
the result is perfectly readable. It's u+00DF, you have it already.
