    Re: Dating Hughes and Son sextants

    Hello,

    I have just been refurbishing my old Husun sextant getting it ready to hang on the wall.  GPS took over a while ago.

    The serial number is 49601 and I bought it as a brand new 3/Mate in 1964.  The certificate is dated 2/11/1964 but as you are aware this is probably not the date of manufacture. I wish I knew when it was actually made.  It's still in very good condition.  Probably last used in ernest in 1978
