To use the Back-Scales, the slider has to be turned.

The slide rule is made of mahogany with scales on celluloid
veneer.  On the back are conversion tables and constants -
given as fractions   ??? - same as (eg.)  K&E 4056  - ???

It came in a black artificial leather case with no cursor.
The cursor is replaced with an unknown frame. The window is
made of PVC from a CD case.  The hairline is made with a
»X-ACTO« and colored with a marker.  Because the slider was 
loose, a cardboard strip is glued on top of the metal body.
