I've wondered what the application would be for half worn pads but your situation seems to make sense.
Are the brake pads long enough that the fork legs are preventing the brake arms from opening fully?

If joejack951's suggestion still doesn't work, try the Koolstop Continental brake shoes. You should be able to reuse the spherical washers and the pad is small enough that the brake arms should open fully. Get the Salmon-colored ones if possible.
