The TRIGONOMETRIC SCALES  are divided in  MINUTES & SECONDS

S keyed to A/B ;  T keyed to C/D

The bamboo sides are held together with a metal sheet.
The slide rule came in a black cardboard case.

HEMMI introduced a year code, starts with  1950 = "A" ... 
and the month code starts with  Jan. = "A" ...  This slide
rule has the code "SI", means it is made in September 1968.

Made 1946 (?), because there is NO YEAR CODE on this SR.
