I’ve been very busy and going through a lot in life but while driving I saw a Paul with bottles in it so I had to stop I’m not a bottle hunter but I kind a know what I’d be looking for they weren’t that old but I found this advertisement boot which was worth a stop.

1 inch high 2 inches long very neet

That's a really cool tape measure. Read that they were used for sewing, but a tape measure is universal.
Good eye on the pick Truth. Here's some examples of listing that are up, and that have sold.
