    Re: Ebay Sextant?????????
    From: Alexandre Eremenko
    Date: 2004 Nov 9, 11:13 -0500

    The frame looks exactly like a frame
    of an old Soviet SN or SNO-M sextant.
    (These old Soviet sextants were probably
    modeled on C Plath, but I've never seen
    a C. Plath with exactly this shape of frame).
    Where does the arm come from I could not
    determine.
    The scope is obviously not from this sextant
    (as many people noticed).
    And they seem to have painted the teeth of the arc(!)
