You are looking at a nice vintage Lufkin Steel tape measure #146, and its original box. This is a 72 inch or 6 foot tape measure. Steel tape is black in color and has silver numbers and markings. Has inches to 16ths markings. Tape has an automatic rewind with the push of a button. Chrome cover is in very nice shape, with a few very fine scratches and no rust or engravings. In the picture that white spot in the middle is just a reflection. Measures just over 1-3/4 inches. The box is in great shape no rips, week spots or major wear. Box measures 2 inches by 2 inches.
