Here is an excellent high quality solid brass heavy sextant in antique finish with wooden brass inlayed case. It measures 5" x 5½" in length and consists of a slow motion control which actually is a micro meter that allows finer adjustments of the elevation angle. The telescope produces a clear image & index and horizon mirrors are in good condition. This brass scale can be read with the help of a magnifier. There is a hardwood handle at the back of the sextant & comes with a cute walnut wood case with brass inlays in it. Also it features an anchor inlay on top of the case. This stunning sextant would make a perfect collectible or gift for a collector or anyone who is interested in celestial navigation.
