From U.S. Navy Bureau of Naval Personnel. NAVPERS 100085-A. Basic Hand Tools. Washington, DC: United States Navy Bureau of Naval Personnel, 1963. Page 33, sub-figure "C" within full-page Figure 1-1-69, "Vernier Caliper." It depicts the scale of a decimal inch vernier caliper, reading 1.436 (the 0 mark on the lower scale is just past the 1.425 mark on the upper scale, and the scales line up at 11 on the lower scale, giving 1.425 + 0.011 = 1.436).
