    I doubt it Gary.  The one I got went for $600 and the seller
    acknowledged that a lug was broken off one of the shades; not a good
    sign.  You can get beat-up C&Ps for less, but the nice ones are in the
    $800 range.  Good luck!
     
     
    Believe me, I didn't mean that I could get it for that price on Ebay.  I had a chance to buy one about one year ago for $350.00.  This was before I was seriously in the market for one.  An elderly widow wanted, "to sell everything that belonged to my husband."  I told her that she might want to get it appraised before putting a price on it, but she insisted that she would be happy with $350.00.  This sextant looked like it was just shipped from the manufacturer.  Her insistence that $350.00 was enough made me nervous.  I wondered what she knew that I didn't.  Looking back, I suspect that she just seriously wanted to get rid of it.  I kick myself every once in a while just to remind myself how stupid I am.
