    I agree with Greg. My best estimate is March 1957. With Bakelite handles like this one, there is usually a C Plath imprint on its face. Some, perhaps all, of this era came in heavy black Bakelite cases with a variety of systems for holding the sextant securely. Maybe Negus had a box made or adapted another for the instrument.
