It is medical but not blood pressure. It measures pressures of explosions of wind from the anus - much over 10psi and you are in trouble.

Its a GMP C Pressure gauge. That there is a precision instrument. Its an air pressure gauge, but what it was used on is beyond me. Could be a boiler, an HVAC unit. Dunno. Throw us some hints..

I'm gonna go ahead and assume it has to do with telephone cable though.

GMP was partners with Bell Telephone and Western Electric. They did a lot with telephone cabling. They are still around too.

I'm serious, GMP manufactures the C Pressure gauge for testing air pressure for telephone cabling cabinets. Actually its for cabling that is under constant pressure. Your C Pressure gauge is from 1960.

http://www.gmptools.com/nf/pdf/1960_gmp_catalog.pdf

Page 36.

You can still buy the C gauge too. Though now it doesn't have the leather encasement. Your missing the chuck and hose on yours.
