The collector virus got me. After 2 purchases, I’m still going strong.

Anyone who has an opinion about this one? The LiP seems not correct to me, but the rest looks orginial to me. Please help.

looks to be a redial IMO. Look at the number placement in the subdials. Sliderule is a reprint too. Lume job is nasty.

The number placement in the subdails are looking ok to me, if a compare it with my other ones. But maybe you are right. How can yousee it is a reprinted sliderule? I will have my doubts about the lip sign. Anyone an insight about that?

The subdials are shaped like a pie dish. The numbers should not be printed on the angled rim edge like they are.

The slide rule is an obvious reprint because the quality the printing is very poor.

Also,...there shouldn't be any gap between the slide rule markings and the inside edge of the slide rule...and it clearly doesn't fit properly.
