Old Birmingham Federal Advertising Tape Measure

This vintage celluloid tape measure reads; Greetings from Birmingham Federal Home Loans. On the other side it has a picture of a building which reads; Birmingham Federal Savings & Loan. The yellow cloth tape has inch increments on one side only. It pulls out and retracts well and has an automatic lock mechanism. I can't make out the last patent date but I would assume this is from the late 1940's early 50's.

It measures about 1 3/8" in diameter and is in very nice condition, including the tape, showing minimal wear.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
