This is a nice, clean, and working measuring tape with the steel 50' tape, marked "THE LUFKIN RULE CO. SAGINAW MICH. U.S.A. 50 FT." on one side, and "METALLIC TAPE MADE IN U.S.A." on the other side of the leather wrapped body. This style features the Woven Metallic Cloth tape measure in inch graduations with raise markings and graduation lines on one side of the 5/8" wide white cloth tape. This one also has the folding exterior tape crank handle so one can wind the tape back in cranking it sort of like a fishing reel. Works very well! The tape is very clean for the most part, some white color darkening on the 1st 6 inches, otherwise very clean, the tape end loop is in great shape very well attached. This one has the 1/2 inch graduations, and the tape is in good shape! This is certainly a collectible tool, as quality small tapes like this are no longer made today. The leather on the outside is real leather, and in pretty good shape, good stitching, some scuffs and scratches, darkening, but not cut or torn. The body under the leather is steel, and the hand crank area is nickel plated steel and brass with about 80% of the nickel plating intact overall. This is a 50 foot tape measure, the exterior body is on 4.3" diameter, and easy to handle size! By a well known toolmaker in the mid-1900's era! A tape of this quality would cost well over $100 for this size if it were being manufactured today. A classic collectible tape measure!
