Item RR17 -  Early Steel Rule. Probably English.

This 19th century 1 foot rule has one rounded end like some English rules. The twelve inch rule is graduated only on one side with scales in eighths, sixteenths, 32nds and 64ths. The graduations and embellishment lines appear to be hand engraved, while certainly the numerals are. There is a hand engraved signature, and perhaps date—but these will require some study to read correctly. It is a neat old rule, the back side crudely stamped, “T. Booth.” There are some nicks on one edge and some light pitting. An interesting old rule. Good
