    Robert Gainer asked, about the Plastimo version of the Ebbco plastic sextant-
    >With that information, I found this;
    >It looks like the same sextant; do you happen to know if it is the same or
    >just a copy of the original?
    Reply from George-
    It was behind glass in a display case, so I couldn't check for details. But
    as near as I could tell the Plastimo version was identical to the Ebbco;
    not just a likeness of it.
