Ok folks, I need help identifying what this is. It seems like some sort of old measuring stick, but the number markings are strange. It measures about 3 feet long. Has the brass piece on one end and is rounded on the other end. At first I thought it might be for measuring liquid in a tank, but then figured that didn't make sense with it being wooden. The owner of this was a farmer, but he also worked at the Indianapolis speedway in the very early days. Does anyone know for sure what it was used for? Thanks for any help!
