This is an ex Defence Department unit.

“The GenRad 1491 Decade Inductance Box is the most accurate decade inductor commercially available. The 1491, has a max inductance of 11 H with a resolution of either 1 mH or 100 µH. The decade switch has high-quality ceramic stator and-rotor members and well-defined ball-and-socket detents. All contacts are made of a silver alloy and have positive wiping action. Shielded toroidal cores are used for small mutual inductance and minimum effect from external fields. The 1491 Inductance decade series are convenient elements for use in wave filters, equalizers, and turned circuits throughout the range of audio and low radio frequencies. As components in oscillators, analyzers, and similar equipment, they are especially useful during the preliminary design period, when the ability to vary circuit elements over relatively wide ranges is necessary to determine optimum operating values. The 1491 Decade Inductors have values of low-frequency storage factor, Q, that are much larger than those of air-core coils.”
