    You can use paint remover/stripper. Never use Muriatic Acid it will
    dissolve the metal.

    I have one of those that is the original horrid olive drab color that I'd love to 'polish'
    down to the metal.
     
    HOW ?
     
    Thanks,
    Courtney

    Thanks all for the feedback.
     
    For the record, I smelled a rat but the sextant is, nonetheless, intriguing because it is not often that you see a polished metal sextant.

    This is the reply from the seller:
    Thank for interest to my auction. Sextant is made of aluminium.
    Unfortunately box is not present. In photos you see a key and two corners for adjustment sextant.
    Best regards,
    Vladimir.
    To me that means no certificate.
    Tell me, is it usual for the frame and index arm to have different serial numbers?

    I had one of these. It was painted black.
