[Archivesspace_Users_Group] merging/fixing duplicate top containers

Without realizing it, we migrated a considerable number of poorly encoded instances into ASpace 1.5 and its new container model. We're trying to figure out how best to deal cases like the one in the screenshot below, where historical practice has found us encoding box and folder numbers in a single instance, with values separated by a slash. Until a merge feature is implemented, it looks like we may have to do this through the API, and I'm wondering if anyone has tackled something similar and can possibly share a solution. 

Thanks much,
