R E M A R K S :
====================================================================
The CF / DF Scales are folded at  sqrt(10)   < and NOT at π >
To use the Back-Scales, the slider has to be turned  -  BUT THAN:

The L-Scale is keyed to 1/X Scale  < but [CI] is not visible !!! >
That means the result is  L = ( 1 - lgX ) = lg( 10/X ) = -lg( X/10 )

There is an open  Q U E S T I O N :  " Why this L-Scale Design ??? "

The owner of the old stationary shop told me,  that this slide rule
was distributed by the  C-THRU®  company,  BUT NO LOGO  is visible.
The SR came in a black soft plastic case without instruction sheet.
