Expedition members used standard barometers as well as recording barographs like this, which records air pressure changes on paper for surface weather observations. The chart now on the instrument is labeled in ink "September 13th 1909" and records the barometric pressure from Monday through Monday (although the chart has run over). Number 1058 is stamped into brass base, as is an indistinct circular mark with R.F. in the center and words around the ring. Plaque is engraved, "Com. Robert E. Peary March 23rd 1905."
