AC POLYRANGER Model "A"
AC Voltmeter. Measures AC volts & current (also responds to DC). Beautiful wooden case, with lid and leather carry handle. Still has original March 11, 1957 signed (Louis Miller) calibration certificate inside. Thermocouple type, 0.5V to 1KV and 10mA to 1A AC. Manual meter zero, mirrored scale. Needle/meter still perfect, but the internal thermocouple has no output, so this unit is strictly for show and tell.
