I see a lot of Schrader pop up tire gauges at swap meets but this is the only one of these that I have come across. Looks like it was carried in the car for a long time judging by the rubbing on the tin and paper instruction sheet.

Hi All

These are two of their earliest patents, and match
the patents shown on the gauge face.
There were patents for similar gauges in the 1920ís.
