=======================================================================
Scale D is keyed to Scale T at  x = 3.6  ( = 1% for 1 Year = 360 Days )

Here the (German-) formulas & translations:

   Z = ( K * p * n )/100 ;   n = Jahre = Tage/360

(  Z = Interest; K = Capital; p = Interest Rate; n = Years; T = Days )
( ZZ = Zinseszins = Compound Interest = K * qn ,  q = 1 + 0.01 * p )

Historical Remarks ...

The slide rule came in a WOODEN BOX. It is made of mahogany with scales
on celluloid veneer.  On its back side are (worn-out) conversion tables
& formulas. To use the LL-SCALES, the slider has to be turned.  NESTLER
& "MODEL 40" are faded, but to read as BLIND PRINTS under the slider. 

The restoration took longer than expected ...
The box and the slide rule came in bad shape: The box was splittered &
the scales were dirty,  scratched and partly broken,  partly not glued.
The cursor was a  NESTLER, but not the original:  Faded 4 hairlines are
useless,  because no SquareScale for Diameter/Area-Relation exist here.
After cleaning, only the center hairline was restored.
