On Valentine’s Day in 1971 Britain, as we knew it, changed forever. Decimalisation had arrived and men and women all over the country were worrying about not being able to make head nor tail of the new system. But a fun little object was invented to help with the changeover – the decimetre.
This great little tool allowed worried shoppers to covert their pounds, shillings and pence to the new decimalised monetary system.
This little black plastic tool comes complete with a case to keep it clean and you can pop it into your pocket with ease.
It measures 9cm and is in excellent condition.
