Y-198. CLAPBOARD MARKING GAUGE. Nester Patent. The rare and gizmoish gauge patented by John Nester of Portland, OR, on New Year's eve of 1867, and manufactured by him. It's primary function was to score clapboards, but it included a level vial and rule and could also serve as a conventional marking gauge, although not very well. Most are mahogany but this looks like rosewood, very clean, brass plating that has been polished but has toned down, user name. Fine 150-250 **All absentee bids must be placed by end of day, Friday, January 24, 2020. Current high bids can be obtained by calling our office at (800) 248-8114.
