Not really.  The PCB "tongue" is on the Newton-side. The contacts in the connector are springs that press against the PCB "tongue" inside the Newton's connector.

    Could the component with the metal contacts be created through some sort of thin-layer PCB process and then wrapped with a 3D-printed housing?
