This auction is for an antique micrometer which I am told is a metalworking measurement tool. This old micrometer is a No. 8 maufactured by Brown & Sharpe Mfg. Co. Providence R. I. The patent dates are July 26, 1891 and December 30, 1902. It comes in the original lined case and it smells quite musty. The micrometer appears to me to be in fine condition. Although it has been used, the numbers on it are all legible and the screw handle works perfect. It does have a name surface scratched on it in very small letters. This man thing is a great antique memorabilia piece and probably still useful to somebody that does things the old fashion way
