Certainly I'll ask a seller if I can see through the instrument etc, before the purchase, but WHAT ELSE should I ask him?
By way of practice, if you were thinking of buying an A7, which is also quite small, you might like to ask the vendor of this item why anyone would want to take the sextant altitude of their own navel? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-U-S-WWII-Army-Air-Corps-Type-A-7-Aircraft-Octant-By-Bendix-Aviation/264545809637?hash=item3d9828b4e5:g:C38AAOSwZy1d27jb DaveP
