STRATTON BROS LEVEL, RSWD. 12", #10, V.NICE

STRATTON 12": The manufacturers' logo and the patent date July 16 1872 are clearly legible. "10" is stamped on the rear end plate. The brass is crisp, clean and shiny with only a few very light dings, as on some of the richly grained and chocolately rosewood. "AA" is almost imperceptably stamped on one side. Both vials are intact and clean. This is an early, super clean and very collectible example, and overall a very good looker. GOOD++
