Vintage Lufkin Cloth Tape Measure - Circa 1920's

Clearly this tape measure has worked hard.

Specs & Markings:
diameter of case is appox 4.25 ins
The brass collar is inscribed .... "Lufkin made in Canada" and "66 FT"

In as found/used condition - the case has surface rust and there are two breaks in the brass collar - the rewind handle/mechanism still works readily - the original clasp remains, although the connection to the tape is worn/in a delicate state (reference photo #2) - the tape itself is in good condition although soiled with age/usage - all-in-all, this tape measure is still intact, although it is probably best suited now as a display/collectable item

The incidental:
The Lufkin firm has been a purveyor of fine measuring tapes and tools since 1869 - a neat period relic for the home handyman or collector of old tools.
