is a new Pickett 101-C circular slide rule. Just like you could have pulled it off the pegs in the store 30 years ago! The slide rule has never been removed from the package, but the cardboard part of the packaging has a couple of bends and t are some small breaks in the plastic wrapping. Inside the package is the original case (leattte?) and instruction booklet, and of course the slide rule! The slide rule is made of metal, has three plastic cursor arms (two on the front and one on the back), and has a diameter of approximately 4 1/4 inches. (If you're interested in checking it out, the manual for this slide rule and others is available at Greg's Slide Rules Website. )
The slide rule has the following scales:
Front: C, CI, A, A 1, L, F, LL 1, LL 2, DS, DT, M
Back: C, S, ST, T, Decimal
