Vintage Chrome Lufkin Rule Co. Pocket tape measure that probably belonged to my roofer grandpa! He had a drawer of these type items given to him by contractors etc for Christmas etc! The metal 96" tape is black with metric on reverse side.... The chrome has a wonderful feel to it with no real scratches just a great patina .... A very small pinhead size mark is to the lower left of the word Made in USA ( photo shows mark)
I'm am not sure about the 4"x4" red striped bag it came in..... Perhaps a gift wrap or something he placed it in to keep from damaging it in his drawer of stuff! Any questions just message me!! The ruler does retract with spring action!
