Vintage 12 Inch Westcott Typist Rule, Pica & Elite Typewriter Ruler
A bygone typist's ruler for accurately measuring typewriter characters for paper settings. This dual-sided typist rule would have been used to measure 'typewriter lines' on one side while the reverse was for measuring 'typewriter spacing'. Both 'Pica' (10 characters to the inch) and 'Elite' (12 characters per inch) forms of measurement are supported. Saves time spent in laboriously counting typewritten lines and spaces.
A great addition for the ruler or typewriter collector.
CONDITION: Some patina with light stains and general wear but otherwise in good vintage condition. The red colour has begun to fade. Some oxidation to the metal part of the ruler.
