The B-29 flew from 1944 until 1960 and was the aircraft that delivered both atomic bombs to Japan. It is in its original leather carrying case and is marked as USAAF Class 30D. The instrument determines loading range by sliding the middle part of the adjuster along according to weight and an index formula (there are tabs underneath which slide as well).
