It's the backplane of an

Yes, that's it.
No, I am PRETTY sure the tool stripped the wire as it was
Right, I was just distinguishing between the wire being stripped vs having the crimp bite
through the insulation.
Looking closely at them, there's actually two sections to the crimp, a short bit that
clamps the insulation and a longer section for the metal-to-metal contact.
I haven't experienced any problems with them, thankfully.
I actually worked at a place that used this system,
in 1969. I believe the system came from AMP, but i could be wrong
I just looked, the edge connectors at least are indeed from AMP.
