Here is a new, old stock Pickett Model N600-ES slide rule with case, manual, and box. It was a Pickett N600-ES slide rule that went to and landed on the moon. Can you believe that the first moon landing was 50 years ago this July? See the links to articles below.
The slide rule is unused, and comes in the original plastic. I took it out of the plastic to inspect it and make the scans. The case is in great condition. It has gold-colored imprinting on it. It has some marks and slight bends from being stored in the same position for decades.
It includes the 95-page manual, "how to use LOG LOG SLIDE RULES", as well as the original guarantee certificate. The box is in pretty good condition, showing signs of decades of storage, including scratches and other marks, and the model name/number sticker has some separation.
Both the slide rule and case are free of any extra writing. The slide rule is made of aluminum and measures approximately 6 inches long by just over 1 inch wide. Please see the scans to see the actual scales and printing.
Here is an interesting article discussing Pickett slide rules and the Apollo missions: Article on Pickett Slide Rules and Apollo Missions. The outside of the box states that there are 19 scales and the inside of the box states that there are 22 scales. This is because the three log-log scales include the "+" and "-". The scales are: LL1(+ & -), A [B, ST, T, S, C] D, DI, K and LL2(+ & -), DF [CF, Ln, L, CI, C] D, LL3(+ & -) Please check my other auctions for more slide rules and related items. Thanks for looking and good luck!
