An email to Salter Australia on Monday 29th October 2007

Hi, and I am hoping you can give me some assistance

I have just bought an "old" set of your scales --- photo below
These are said to be "No 54A" and are marked "Australian Patent Number 166276"

Would you be able to tell me about when these scales were released on to the Australian market?
Any other info you may have on this set would also be really appreciated

Thank you, Geoff

The reply from Jason Ferguson at Salter Australia

Hi Geoff

I have spoken to one of our senior techs about the scale
We don’t have any info other than we believe it is circa 1950’s

Best regards, Jason
