El-Tronics PR-3A GM Survey Meter (1952-1955)

This GM survey meter was manufactured by El-Tronics Inc. of Philadelphia sometime in the early 1950s. 

As is the case for a number of El-Tronics GMs, the color-coded meter display changes scale in conjunction with a change in the range switch. The highest range (0-20 mR/hr) is red, the middle range (0-2 mR/hr) is yellow, and the most sensitive scale (0-0.2 mR/hr) is green).
