    Thanks Fergus.  This is about the fourth time it’s come up in the last couple of months.  If you look closely, you’ll see it’s really bashed about.  I emailed the company and, against my better judgement, offered £50GBP for it, but they never replied.  If I’ve got to pay £180 like they’re asking, I’ll wait until a good one comes up.  Before Christmas, I only paid £70 for a pristine Bundeswher  3V Kollsman pendulous reference sextant from a similar surplus organisation in Poland.  It's got that lovely whiskey/pipe tobacco smell you can't resist when you open the box.
