The milliamperes system still responds to potential differences but the accuracy of the measurements is not guaranteed considering the age of the device. Moreover it is important to note that the latter, although functional, is a collector's item or museum that can not be used to make measurements because it does not meet the current safety standards.

It’s in very good condition.

Dimensions: 16 (diameter) x 5 (thickness) cm

Weight: 2600 grams

A collector's instrument, rare in this version.
