A sextant made especially for the air force in North America.
For a U.S. Army bomber.
The sextant is original and also stored in the original wooden box.
Magnificent copy that will look at home at the collector’s or even in a museum.
This device allows you to set a distance by means of dashes on a disc. The nice thing about this set is that there is 1 disc with the original dashes still on it. It is in working condition, only the liquid that was in it has evaporated over the years.
