This was used by various personnel throughout the war in conjunction with weapon systems. Made of brass, wood, and steel by Fugi, and dated 1944, this Surveying Compass is in VERY NICE used condition!
It is 100% functional, however there are some marks and scratches from use and age. It comes complete in the original wood box (though the internal wood structure has been removed), and is 100% complete with the original mounting clamp! All markings and codes are legible, including the date "19" (1944), as well as the Imperial Japanese Army Star acceptance stamp. Almost identical to the German Luftwaffe version, I have shown a similar set-up in use in the last photo.
The only one I have seen, it is an EXTREMELY rare item, PERFECT for any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
