Hello, i have here an aneroid barometer by james w queen and co. These were manufactured 1859 to 1896, by what i could find on the website of national museum of american history. I dug around quite a bit and was unable to find out more about this particular one. Looks to be of brass and the back looks shows a little wear, perhaps from being in pockets. The front plate is in very good condition. It appears it needs to be set/calibrated with a small screwdriver. Elevation goes up to 10,000 feet. I tried getting a real close picture of the writing on the front, but it just wasn’t coming out as well as i had hoped. If someone wants a closer picture i might be able to try another way.The item “James W Queen & CO Antique Aneroid Baromter Late 1800’s Compensated Philadelphia” is in sale since Wednesday, December 10, 2014.
