Came across this last night in a bedroom dresser drawer, of all places. It comes in its original leather case. I thought it was a shotgun shell at first. I read that they were sold as advertising by the Wyeth Hardware Stores. It is stamped:
SCHRADERS UNIVERSAL TIRE GAUGE
Manufactured By A. Schrader & Son Inc.
Brooklyn N.Y. U.S.A. --- Pat. July 6, 1909 --- March 28,1916
The third photo is one I got off the internet showing it extended. I do plan to test it out at home, when I get a chance.
