Transit built in 1950 SN: 131840 Model: P5085C Patent NO. I know that this is some sort of road construction Survey Transit Telescope I believe. The wood case came with a leather handle that part of it is no longer there on the top part area it must have came off. The tools inside all seem to be there I believe. There is a small rope or string in the small container below the telescope.

There is no key for the lock. I tested all the dials and levels and adjusters and all the levels and dials adjustment screws seem to work. The Keuffel and Esser Co. Also known as K & E, was a drafting instrument and supplies company founded in 1867 by two German immigrants, William J. It was the first American company to specialize in these products.
