AloeBlunt Wye Level

Description
This level is marked, "A. S. Aloe Maker St. Louis No. 69 Blunt & Co. N. Y.” and it is difficult to know what to make of the signature. A. S. Aloe did sell various optical and mathematical instruments, but there is no evidence that he could or did make them. Blunt & Co., which was in business under this name from 1869 to 1874, probably did make instruments of this sort.
