CD V-755 High School Kit Documents From New York
I thought these would be of interest since they are original vintage 1958-1960 FCDA radiation instrument documents.
Files are between 150KB and 200Kb in size so they may take a while to load.
I have slightly watermarked the scans of these documents because I have had sellers on ebay.com take documents that I provide for free on my site, put them on CDs, and try to sell them on ebay.
FCDA Shipping Form 224B
This form has prices for the instruments on it. Dated September, 26 1958.
The CD V-138 Dosimeters were on backorder when the kit was delivered.
FCDA Shipping Form 224

CD V-787 Ten-day Water Standard
Here is a description of the CD V-787 taken from the University of New York Letter Page 2...
"The CD V-787 is a low intensity harmless radioactive comparison standard which provides a method of measuring radioactivity in food and drinking water by comparing it's reading against the beta-gamma concentration in a food or water sample with a beta-gamma geiger counter having a range of 0-50 mr/hr."
Special thanks to William Bashaw III for these two CD V-787s!
