Most likely Type I.

Measure the thickness.  If it is 3.3 mm thick it is Type I.  If it is 5 mm thick it is Type II.  Type II was mainly for specialized devices and most manufacturers have standardized on Type I.  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CompactFlash#Type_I_and_Type_II for more details.

Type II, as I recall, was mostly for MicroDrives where it was nigh-on impossible to fit a hard drive in 3.3mm.
