Pickett N-500-ES "Grantham"

I received this rare one as standard issue with a correspondence course in electronics engineering I took in the late '60s. It is a standard N-500-ES "eye-saver" yellow HI-Log/Log rule except for the reproduction of the "Grantham" logo on the right end of the slide. There was no book supplied with it since the course covered useage in solving various problems throughout. The plastic-lined scabbard has the Pickett and Grantham Electronics Schools logos and a D-ring for attaching a clip-on belt loop which has been lost.

Scales: (22)
Front: +LL1, -LL1(red),A,[B,T,ST,S,C],D,DI,K
Back: +LL2,-LL2(red),[DF,CF,CIF,L,CI,C],D,+LL3, -LL3(red)

Condition: Fine. No marks or scratches on body of rule, cursor is slightly scuffed over the hairline from repeated rubbing in the scabbard sleeve.

Pickett N-515-T "CIE"

Another correspondence school issue rule, this rule was patented in 1964, by Darrell Geiger. The patent was assigned to the Cleveland Institute of Electronics. Both the rule and the leather case are marked "Cleveland Institute of Electronics", as well as "Pickett" (gold stamping is brighter than the picture shows).This 10" (12" long) style is the rule with special radio scales for computation of AC circuit impedance and resonance. The back has a collection of common electronics formulas as well as the Pickett "decimal locator." No manual was supplied; instructions were given at intervals in the course booklets.

Scales:
Front - H (Lr), (fx) 2*,A,(Cr) B,S,T,CI (Lx OR Cx), D (Xc), L,Ln (see photo, below)
Back - electronic math and trig formulas

Value: $

Condition: Fine. No marks or scratches on body of rule, cursor is slightly scuffed over the hairline from rubbing in the scabbard sleeve.

Front showing scales. Other end has markings for reading scales in reverse, solving resonance formulas.

Sterling "Precision"

Low-cost 10" rule with 8-inch scales. All plastic white standard rule with simple plastic sleeve. Rule has an inch-ruler with 1/16" markings on one edge, and a ".050" increment ruler on the other. The pale green slide can be removed and flipped over to use the trig/log scales on its reverse side, although the C-scale is lost when doing so. Perhaps for some calculations, the C-scale reading can be saved in the cursor hairline position temporarily while the S, L, and T scales are used?
