    My mom gave me this great ruler a long time ago. Helvetica figures are silkscreened in two colors on the back.

    No idea who designed or manufactured it, but it’s still one of my favorite thingies.

    Thanks, Mom!

      I have the exact same ruler and actually it’s a quite iconic piece from the mid 1970's. Now, of course, it’s a seldom seen lucite desktop ruler that’s worth a lot more than one might think, especially if it’s free of scratches or paint loss.
