REMARKS:
================================================================
This Pocket SR has the same scale configuration as the  N800-ES.
It came in a brown leather case with a clip for the vest pocket.

The term "synchro 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 follower POCKET,  N600-ES, is famous for historical reasons:
It accompanied the astronauts on board of 5 Apollo moon flights.
