The picture shows a view of this Old Benedik Brothers Rath Feed Advertising Premium Sample Rain Gauge Recorder. The year that this rain gauge was made is unknown but it is believed to be from the 1950s or 1960s. The gauge is made of painted and imprinted steel. The recorder dial is a pinkish color aluminum. It looks like a token that is mounted with a center rivet. The tube insert is made of glass.

To use this gauge you would place it in an unobstructed place and check the number of inches of rain that fell during a storm from the glass tube. You would then add it to the dial by turning it keeping track of how much fell in a given week, month, season, year, etc. up to 100 inches. There are two holes on the base, as made, so that it can be screwed to a fence post, window sill, or where ever you choose.

This was used as a salesmens sample to get people or companies to order a quantity to give out to their customers as an advertising premium. It is imprinted in red and green on an off white background. It pictures an old dial telephone and a Native American Indian headdress logo. It is marked as follows:

RAIN - GAUGE - RECORDER

BENEDIK BROTHERS
RATH FEED
MODERN TECHNOLOGY
FOR THE MODERN FARMER ....
714 - 0915
SAMPLE 830

The gauge measures 4-1/2'' x 4-3/8'' x 1-3/8''. It is in near mint unused condition as pictured.
