K&E GP12 – Full Size Rule

USD $65

This is a rare opportunity to get this exceptionally useful late version Ivorite body rule from K+E (68-1565), with mint gold-embossed, black sewn leather case.  This very late (1964 scale copyright) modern style rule has the unique inch/cm converter scales and rulers on the rear side. A very attractive and useful rule, with dual Sq scales, trig and folded scales, plus the metric conversion/rulers/log calculator on the rear face.

It has the sloped end brace style of the Deci-lon, but made in plastic, rather than metal, a very nice looking set, and not easy to find, especially in such good condition.

Scales include:
Front – Sq1, Sq2, DF, [ CF, T, SRT, S, CI, C, ] D, A, K
Back – number, [ cm, (factors and data) inch, ] Logarithm
