    Dear Joel,

    as I haven`t seen the sextant certificates that you`re mentioning, I can`t really give a good answer. But I would guess that they had “Deutsche Seewarte” printed on them, which was the precursor of the “Bundesamt für Seeschiffahrt und Hydrographie”, the German Hydrographic Office, up to 1945. They were testing sextants and issueing certificates, as far as I know – but I could check.

    Regards, Wolfgang

    Wolfgang,

    Thanks for the correction.

    I never thought to take pictures of them, but  there were some sextant certificates that had Deutsch Seefahrt. printed on them.

    Can you explain its meaning.?

    Thanks,

    Joel Jacobs
