    "Recently picked up the Davis mark 12 sextant. And since I’m a reseller I’m curious as to what it sold for two years ago. Mine is I think in a little rougher condition but seems fully functional and has the case and a 3x telescope with it."

    No one replied on this? Ah well, it's the quiet season, late July and early August.

    Is it really a Davis Mk 12? Not a Mk 15? Typically in very good used condition a Mk 15 sells for about $80 on ebay. If yours is in "rougher condition", the only real way to judge is from photos. Can you post a few, especially showing any flaws?
