No. 49 inclinometer. 24" level with elaborate webbing and an inclinometer in one end. It's rusty. Okay, it's REALLY rusty. And it has one chipped corner and the corner of each of the brass labels is missing a rivet. But otherwise it's complete, with wet vials and undamaged webbing, and would clean up to a nice example of an uncommon level. Good- (PLH830) 60 - 120
