Solid Brass Full Size Working Sextant - 9.5"


This is a "real" working sextant or very close to 'real' thing.  Finely hand machined solid brass sextant in mahogany cabinet. Has all the working parts and mirrors

However, it has NOT been calibrated as far as we know and thus we DO NOT recommend buying this to be used as a reliable instrument for navigation.


Can be used to take some good global measurements and as an excellent teaching tool.
