    Re: Plath Coutinho Sextant on eBay

    Saw recently almost an almost exactly same looking Coutinho sextant on Ebay.
    Had been fabricated in  Jan 1936 (this one is Feb 1936). Same scope, no
    artificial horizon. Same round box, although with a data plate (here missing).
    On both the lighting unit- including switch on handle - is missing. Seems this
    mod was done later on (by the same person?).
