Model N803 is an improvement of the N800 series. It came with a
leather case, which can be clipped on the user's belt - typical for
the USA: As seen in the "Western Movies" ready for a "quick draw".

This models are made of aluminum. The typical "Pickett-Yellow"
has an "-ES"-Extension in the model-number, means "Eye-Saver".
The white one has a "-T"-Extension, stands for "Traditional".

The term "SYNCRO SCALE" stands for the combined LogLog scales:
They are designed as a uniquely, split long scale, and, because
LL+/- are reciprocal, 2. & .5 (eg.) share the same tick.

The term "DUAL BASE" means:
Using the D scale X, the LL scales result in Power-of-E( X ).
Using the CFM scale X, the LL scales result in Power-of-10( X ).
