Mayhew Metal Products measuring tape

I found this nice leather-covered four foot measuring tape at a flea market near Detroit a few years ago. The spring mechanism is balky and the tip is broken but the leather case is what attracted me, it would have been a nice upmarket device to pull out of the other vest pocket of your three piece suit.
  Looking for information on the company I find they are thriving in Turners Falls and Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, displaying a 60 page catalog of tools and celebrating 150 years of manufacturing punches and chisels.
