Code BA11050112: French Hunter Sighting Compass c. 1900
This is a nice and large French sighting compass dating from early 1900. It comes in a sturdy Nickel plated full hunter case in excellent condition. No dings or dents. The case is very sturdy and has a strong hinge. It is marked with serial number 7 on the side of the case. The dial is in excellent condition and marked MADE IN FRANCE. The hinged sighting vane is still present and in excellent condition. The compass is covered with a glass crystal free of scratches and chips. It is in full working order and points North easily. The transit lock that prevents the needle from moving is also in working order. It measures 52mm in diameter. Would make a nice gift.
