HERE ARE TWO VINTAGE (ANTIQUE) WOODEN YARDSTICKS BY THE LUFKIN RULE COMPANY (NOW APEX TOOL GROUP) WHICH WAS FOUNDED IN 1869 IN CLEVELAND OHIO BY AN OHIO CIVIL WAR VETERAN, EDWARD TAYLOR LUFKIN .
ONE IS IN PARTICULARLY GOOD CONDITION WITH DISTINCT LETTERING AND NOMENCLATURE. EACH IS FOLDABLE AS SEEN AND IS 36 INCHES OVERALL LENGTH.
I AM INCLUDING THE SECOND ONE AS WELL, EVEN THOUGH IT HAS LESS DISTINCTIVE LETTERING BUT IS IN, I BELIEVE,
VERY CONDITION FOR ITS AGE. THE TOP ONE HAS A PATENT DATE IN IT JUNE 14, 1914 . THIS MAKES ONE OF THESE OVER 100 YEARS OLD. THE OTHER MAY WELL BE ALSO. THE TOP ONE IS MARKED NO. 1 . AGAIN, THE LOWER ONE MAY ALSO BE A NO. 1.
