The fourth piece is the a nice clean center head with about 90% original paint intact, good clean bare metal surfaces. It is marked "HARDENED" on one side. A very nice older center head!
A nice early precision square / protractor set overall! Used for more than 2 generations of toolmaker's, and still in good working condition! No owner's marks on any of three pieces but the hardened rule has a light previous owner's mark on one side. Quality made, well cared for!
