This translucent plastic template has sixteen symbols cut out of it, as well as four indentations along the edges. The top and bottom are marked off in six inch scales which are not subdivided. The symbols are not labeled. A mark at the bottom left reads: UNIVAC. A mark at the bottom right reads: Remington Rand.
