    WW II era APN's are climbing in asking price (ww II collectors, I
    assume) although I just saw a 60's edition of APN offered for $25.
    Check www.bibliocity.com periodically for opportunities.
    Also, check www.ebay.com - there are usually 15-20 sextant offerings.
    Closing prices, notably on Astras are not always bargains but a little
    patience should yield an good unit at an equitable price.  And anyone
    obsessed with owning an aircraft sextant will find units, too.
