C. F. Richardson Survey Level Scope w/ Extra Level, Tripod & BoxC. F. Richardson Survey Level Scope w/ Extra Level, Tripod & Box    An unusual piece by a relatively obscure level and tool maker that was ultimately bought out by Goodell Pratt and Starrett.  It is in very nice condition and dates from the late 1800s.

The box is original and OK.  There are two of the special design 10" levels w/ cast in mounting points, and one 12" nickel plated scope that attaches to the top.  The levels and scope are in fine condition.   It will make for a nice display piece in a number of settings or would be perfect for re-enactments or things of that sort!!  Graphic & Nice!!
