Item RR15 - Stephens No. 27 2-fold, 2-foot rule. 

This scarce Stephens rule is akin to the Stanley No.15, with Gunter’s slide and a plethora of scales and gradations.  Made between 1854 and 1901, it is marked, “U.S. Standard”.  This suggests that it was made shortly after 1855 when the U.S. adopted a revised “Standard Yard” and rule makers vied to keep their products current.  The rule is somewhat worn and faded, with some staining.  The marks are clear but light.  It is straight, but is missing its internal pin.  There is  dent or two in the brass binding.  Good.
