What are the thoughts on this Sestrel sextant I just picked up? It appears to be completely unused. I have sent an inquiry to John Lilley & Gillie but have not heard back yet. Given John Lilley & Gillie supplies to the commercial shipping industry I am thinking it may have been part of a commercial ship commissioning requirement and basically never used. the box does show reasonable use & wear on the outside.
