Light meter/film speeds : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I just aquired an old G.E. Polaroid light meter that still works. As you look down into the meter, you see a series of numbers(2-8) in a row and a capitol leter under them.The only adjustment is a screw in the center over which is printed the work"Speed". When the screw is turned a new set of numerals appears in the window and a new letter. With each turn the numbers shift just a little. Polaroid tells me the meter was for the days of roll film cameras and is useless now. All I want to do is find the ASA equivilants to the letters(A-E). These letters must represent the various ASA's of the older films. Is there anyone out there that can supply this info. Many thanks for your help.
